Default Re: Dangerous Trend : Kids standing & sticking out of Sunroofs!

A friend once said
If the intellect developed in proportion of the wealth, the world would be heavenly.

And everytime I see this on the road I think that's partly true because this thread has real world examples of it decreasing in proportion of the wealth gained.

Either ways driving through all this and more, on our roads, has desensitised me to a lot of things which some years ago were unthinkable.

Why can't the sunroof sound a harsh alarm if it detects anything/anyone between it. They already have pinch sensors so this is a question of will. This should also be mandatory IMHO.
Further on the system can close the sunroof once the obstruction is removed and not open until the car is stopped and restarted.
But just the alarm itself will be quite a deterrent.

Dear Parents, Please DO NOT do this stupidity

I have noticed this so many times. Posting 3 such instances when I was able to capture them on cam.

Sunroof is for letting natural light in, not to jut your offspring out

It is quite irritating to see kids standing up and sticking their head out of the sunroof. These Parents are educated and financially sound enough to buy nice cars but their literacy and common sense goes down the drain when they choose to do this stupidity.

A child sticking himself/herself outside the sunroof faces the following risks :

1. Being hit by insects/ stones/ other foreign particles

2. A sudden braking can be strong enough to break a few ribs

3. A kid standing on the rear seat is a potential distraction to the driver + a hindrance to internal rear view mirror.

It's completely unsafe! Please refrain from doing this. Please!

This Audi was parked. Still, not a good thing to do.

Today, more and more cars are getting sunroof. It's high time people have some awareness in using it.
