Title: safety concern or something to think about...
Post by: dmmc on June 19, 2013, 08:05:16 PM
I recently saw a plastic barrier that got a 6" wide x 24" long piece cut out of its top corner by a car's belly pan.  The spear-like piece ended up inside the car with the driver.  It was a fluke occurrence that could have had horrible consequences.  Perhaps we need to look at the way our car's belly pans align with side panels, nosecones, etc.  With the increased use of these moveable plastic barriers, the potential for similar incidents is real.
