    Default Nanny Government At It's Best - Banning Sledding

    Towns Ban Sledding Over Liability and Lawsuit Fears - NBC News

    In a 2010 study, The Center for Injury Research at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, found sledding accidents led to more than 20,000 emergency room visits a year. The center recommends wearing helmets and avoiding hills with trees, fences, light poles or rocks.
    Note that the center recommends avoiding inanimate objects, and consider wearing a helmet. Not banning it.

    Are these people fucking idiots? Banning sledding? Really? Your solution to preventing a remote risk is to not allow anyone to do it? I'm all for protecting the public, but this is a recreational activity that people make the conscious and active decision to participate in. What's most infuriating is that these sort of hypothetical lawsuits would stand in court. Your child died during sledding? Well, that is very sad, but it's no ones fault. It happening on public land is an incidental matter.

    This is a kind of government that I despise. I've honestly never met anyone in person that supports this sort of governance and sometimes I wonder if they're even as common as the media portrays them to be. I hope I never meet them though because I will be none too nice to them.

    In that case they should probably ban Calvin and Hobbes too.

    Slightly better that they're only banning it on public property rather than everywhere. Convenient that the headline leaves that out.

    Not much different than, say, "No skateboarding" signs, right?
