When the motor car became the preferred road vehicle, owners of horse drawn vehicles were significantly concerned about safety with the noisy fume emitting faster machines bringing danger to traditional road users to protest.
Nanny state was alive and well even all those years ago and legislation was passed requiring a walking person carrying a red flag to precede each and every one of the new fangled machines.
Yesterday another educated numpty had a brainfart and called for reversing cameras to be mandatory on all vehicles to prevent the horrifying but easily preventable death by reversing vehicle.
It is illegal to leave a child under 14 unattended.
The vehicle operator cannot run over a child legally.
If the driver has an unattended child around , put the freakin kid in the cab.
We have three ankle biter dogs and they are secured before anyone goes to a vehicle, no fatalities yet.
I will wager a hundy to a knob of dogshit the first fatality after this stupid idea gets introduced, and it will happen, will be a vehicle where the Camera has either been pawned for a bit of 'gear' or is broken and no-one did anything about fixing it.
Common sense will trump technology every time.
Sheesh walk around the vehicle even if only to ensure the four tyres are there with enough air and no obstacles, it might just avoid another krushed kid.
Hey people the little bugger might just be retrieving its ball out of sight of the camera!!!!
A large notice in the carpark of The Tree Fellers Arms reads; "parked cars dont kill".
