US flags called 'liability,' ordered removed from New York fire trucks | Fox NewsThe banners were installed on the trucks at the request of the union, but a divided Board of Fire Commissioners determined they could distract other drivers and expose the city to civil liability.
Ok... I understand various things, but.... a Flag on the back of a fire truck is considered a distraction?
I'm sorry but the truck itself is pretty distracting. If I see a fire truck, I'm often wondering if they're coming back from something - what happened, wonder if I know whoever was involved ... etc etc.. If the lights are on, yeah I'm pretty distracted by the truck anyway.
How... how can an American flag logically be more distracting than the truck itself?
