When is a box of tissues a house brick?

Answer: when it's launched from the parcel shelf in your car due to coming to a crash stop. That was just one of the scary things I heard at a road / car safety talk at my son's school today. The Road Safety Officer told us that a woman driver was killed when she was hit on the back of the head by a flying tissue box.

Another driver bled to death after the artery in her neck was cut by a flying CD.

Everyone went home to tidy up their car!

And as far as the children are concerned (the main aspect of the talk): in a class of 30 children, 2 can expect to be killed or seriously injured in a road accident before their 16th birthday. Most serious child pedestrian accidents happen on quiet residential roads.

Another, rather serious, public service announcement......
