See if you can find plastic but looking very much like the real thing Barbed Wire, stretch it across between the bus and Toad!!  Good grief, your right this was stupid of them. 

Maybe a very loud audible alarm that is motion activated from the back & the sides of the bus from either direction.  I am not sure if this is possible without the alarm activating on turns but maybe something we can find out from others.  There has to be something to do, even if not your fault of coarse it would be hard to get past the thought of a serious injury.

Lets figure out how to prevent this also between us all.

If you figure out something good you can market it on ebay and make some fuel money. Insurance companies might chip in a little incentive also.

Nick, I think maybe you need another bungie about 1/2 way down.  I have a feeling that some idiot is still going to try to crawl through.

Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

Ridiculous as this sounds if you do something to acknowledge that you think it is a risk then you may be leaving yourself open to a lawsuit.  The example I am thinking of is the farmer who puts up a "beware of the dog" sign.  That leaves him liable if the dog then bites someone.  Absent the sign he can argue that he didn't know the dog was dangerous.

If anyone is stupid enough to trip crossing my towbar they better hope that:
a) I don't pull ahead and drive over their stupid carcass
b) They don't get a leg caught between the bars and break it followed by a)

There ain't no cure for stupid.

Have any of you ever heard of the Darwin Awards?

These are given each year to the people who graciously removed themselves from the Human gene pool through their own stupidity.

Makes the sign say something like "Fragile equipment, Damage it and pay for it"  LOL
