I was a bit uneasy when were driven around in one of these by the salesman. My 7 year old son could have easily fallen out. I'm so used to kids being strapped in to vehicles I guess. When I was a kid we used to lay along the back seat sleeping and my Mum used to put babies in a carry cot just sitting on the back seat. I don't think our cars even had seatbelts in the back. I'm only just started here and I'm going :offtopic: :newhere:

Gotta say, I'm with you here!!

I remember many times, me being alseep on the back seat whilst my mum & dad were in the front not wearing their seatbelts.
Our Mk 2 Escort did not have seatbelts in the back.
I also remember me standing inbetween the front seats, with my mum having her arm across to stop me climbing into the front!!
I'd like to say how perceptions have changed over the years from the late 70's. However, just stand outside your local school and watch the mums arriving with their kids, you'll see things have not changed that much! :(

I am not sure but i think i read something a while back that the same thing applies to supermarket carparks aswell, the carpark belongs to the supermarket but the roads in the carpark belong to the local council / highways agency but i don't know how they get round the gates / barrier thing though :smile:

If the road is a place to which "the public have access" then it is classed as a road... if the Supermarket put a big barrier up when they close, it ceases to be a public road.

On the issue of speed on the park roads, this season appears to have been worse at BD than previous years that I recall. I am on a mobility scooter, so I am very aware of fast moving vehicles, and it shocks me the amount of drivers who break the speed limit on park - with a car full of children!! Surely these are the same children who will later be walking around the park? I wonder whether the speeding parents will then get cross with other speeding drivers if their child gets hurt? It seems so ridiculous for people on a family park to take these risks, and some drivers must do their cars some damage when they go over the many speed humps on park at the speeds they use.

I have twice had to almost dive off my scooter because of cars coming too fast around a corner and almost knocking me off. Once was not all the drivers fault as it was a dark corner because the street lighting wasn't working, but one of them was in daylight and the car just screeched around the corner, barely missing me! And he didn't even look apologetic or sheepish!! That could so easily have been a child, in a pushchair, and could so easily have been a tragedy.

Maybe we owners should take licence plate numbers and pass them on to security....although on my previous park (non Haven!) it was often 'staff' who did the speeding! At my husbands workplace, that is a sackable offence.

Rant over! lol

Hands up who was allowed to sit on my dad's lap while he was driving ? Me!

Life has changed so much. When we were travelling down to Exmouth my mum and dad used to make us a 'bed' in the estate bit of the car, and we used to sleep most of the way down. Infact, we used to travel in the boot quite regularly just for a laugh.

Back home in Birmingham we at times used to sit in the back of my dad's pick up on carpet tiles. As a treat if we had been good he used to take us to a local trading estate where they had massive speed bumps and go over them.

We all used to go down to the seaside in the back of my step granddad's transit van. There were kids literally laying all in the back. Good times.

Well on sat night a pick up passed me at PV with kids sat in back , if the driver had to slam the brakes on the kids would have slammed up against the cab back or been thrown out. These people have probably been drinking and without thinking , they think the roads are private well they are not and if the police see them then they will be in trouble.

We have just come back from a week at Greenacres and whilst there I saw a huge amount of kids driving round on their parents knees and toddlers/babies sat on mothers lap in front seat no seatbelts!

Trouble is holiday makers assume that the park roads are private. I saw one idiot with a child on his lap steering the car past the end of Beech Rise last week. Perhaps Haven should put signs up at the entrances reminding people of the true status of the roads. There again, probably won't make any difference to those idiots.
