    Opposite Lock in Ballarat have a bonfide case of a female who suffered fatal injures after the tow ball snapped off and hit her on the upper body. It is taped to their front counter with time date place names and circumstances of the accident. Brings it home when there is a actual name attached to the event. As far as 13 deaths in 12 months I find that circumspect as state coroners would be linking the deaths and putting significant effort in reducing incidents. Still, one death is too many.
    The fear of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision

    Just curious is there a forum member that could make up stickers for the rear of our trucks with the warning that a lot of us have adopted in our signatures (thanks to who ever started it) i would purchase a couple without hesitation think having them on our trucks would show that we as 4wdrivers are serious about safety and it would get the message out there where its needed most
    Theres only one thing tougher than my truck............. YES DEAR GOING TO DO THE LAWNS NOW
    WARNING: Towballs used for recoveries,can and do kill people and damage property

    Now that is a great idea, nothing like spreading the word, even those without a 4x4 would get the message, young kids would grow up with this message in the back of their minds.
    Cheers, the ferret.

    The current slogan is pretty good

    Warning: Using a snatch strap on any tow ball can kill people.

    I haven't been able to come up with a shorter one.

    I want to put it on the back step of my GQ near that loop that we so often talk about.

    I wonder if we could cover both?

    What about 'No Snatch' with an arrow pointing left or right, and under that, the words something like 'No Snatch from Towball - it can kill'

    I bet someone can do better.
