Butlins bans bumper-car bashing

Three seaside funfairs have banned visitors using their bumper-car rides from bumping into one another, insisting that they drive around the track carefully and sedately instead.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, the Butlins resorts at Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness have all decided that the rides should live up to their other name – dodgems – and that users should avoid other people, not run into them.
The newspaper quotes the Bognor Regis resort director, Jeremy Pardey, as saying he could not allow the cars to bump “for health and safety reasons”. He added: “The point of our dodgems is to dodge people, not run into people.”
