Hi-Viz For Cows

Kudos to Nanny for coming up with one her most absurd ideas yet, hi-viz jackets for cows.

Hungerford Council were concerned about the health and safety aspects of cows wandering the local roads at night, lest they be hit by a car.

The suggestion made was for the cows to wear hi-viz clothing and, at the suggestion of the mayor, lights strung round their necks!

Suffice to say, the local farmers think that this idea is bollocks. As one farmer pointed out, cows don't always conveniently stand at 90 degrees to an oncoming car. Sometimes cows stand facing the vehicle, as such a hi-viz jacket would not be seen.

The sensible solution is for there to be traffic calming measures, so vehicles are not roaring round the danger areas at night at insane speeds.

Roger Denton, one of the farmers, is quoted by the Telegraph:
The thing about fluorescent collars is that they’d only get them off anyway and litter them all over the common.”
Nanny needs a strong dose of common sense!

  1. The question which must be answered is which politician or local council has shares in a hi-viz company?.....I actually stand out more because I am one of the few people who don't wear hi-viz.

    Is this really Nanny's daftest idea to date? There seems to be many to choose from but, I admit, it is up there!
