I’ve been appalled by the number of times I’ve seen young kinds standing up in the car, with their heads and upper bodies out of the sun roofs, while the car is travelling down a busy road or highway. It is bad enough that many parents don’t strapped their kids in or keep them on their laps here. But, to allow then to do this is even worse.
Accidents happen in a split second. There is usually very little time to react. So there would be no time for them to pull their kids back in and strap 'em down. In fact, in many cases the kids would probably just go flying out the sunroof landing beside the road or in the path of another car.
I can just see these parents… they’d be the ones trying to sue the car manufacturers and the manufacturers of the sunroofs for not telling them how idiotic they are to do that.
The other bit of parent stupidity that gets me is the parents on scooters who wear a helmet, but don’t put one on their kid. Like Lil’ Wen-yu and Lil’ Pei-ying’s heads are harder than Mama or Baba, so they don’t need it.
What is equally ridiculous is the reverse, where they give helmets to the kids, but don’t wear one themselves. Their kids heads will be safe, but theirs can get slammed on the concrete. That way the kids can possibly end up with seriously injured parent. That should drastically improve their kids’ lives, making them… oh… so much better.
