5,945 Britons were hospitalised by trousers in 1999, almost 5 times more than for chainsaw-related injuries.
I say it's about time we banned trousers, or compel trouser wearers to have extra health insurance to cover their medical expenses.

The Air Ambulance Service is a Charity funded service as is the R.N.L.I. Perhaps it's time to ban the pastime that requires their services most of the time i.e motor vehicles .

I am afraid that this is another direct consequence of making the countryside into a playground.
Those making it into a playground should be directly responsible for the costs.

its ok for rescue services to be called out constantly when people allow their dogs to jump off the cliffs but its not ok for anyone in genuine need?

Require each one to carry public liability insurance, just as skydivers have to.
