What is the point of these signs ?
I know that some people argue that the signs are put up to explain why people are driving slowly. My response is that if they had bought a decent child seat they wouldn't have to drive at a snails pace. Less money spent on signs and more on the seat would be my argument.
Has anyone ever modified their own driving because they have seen a baby on board sign ?
How many times have you driven along the road fully intending to crash your car in to another car, then at the last moment changed your mind because they have a baby on board sign in their window ?Personally I think it is simply a case of parents bragging. Just like some annoying parents get out photos at every opportunity to show you how little Josh is growing up so quickly or how Emily looks so smart in her school uniform, these signs simply serve to tell people "Look, we have children and we care for them so much we are going to tell you to be extra careful around us".
Iain Dale wrote earlier in the week that I was turning middle aged for buying a Skoda. I don't mind being middle aged. But if I put a "baby on board" sign in my car, then I have become anally retentive as well, and that I can't cope with.
