We see all those warning stickers in owner manuals all the time when we buy a new piece of equipment. They have gotten to be so many safety switches on Lawn tractors it takes extra hours to trouble shoot problems with clutches and such.
Yet every year some fool and it isn't always a man is running a riding lawn tractor mowing with a small child on there laps or even a tiny baby in their (woman) arms. the woman was doing a ditch bank not just the flat part of the lawn and just yesterday there was a man with about a year old child also mowing a ditch then just a couple drive ways down there was a young girl using a push mower in ditch with shorts and flip flops on.
When I got to where I was going the home owner was out using his trimmer with a cutter blade on to cut down a crop of golden rod on the banks of his pond. No shirt, just shorts and flip flops.
I want to stop some times and read them the riot act but some do carry a gun when mowing, Like I do one place where I have seen several coyotes while mowing that lawn.
I also figure if they are that stupid they wouldn't listen any way.
