This would look lovely on the back of a frozen food van.

 

It might look even better on the side of the van, where it would be uninterrupted by all that door furniture, but I suppose there's a risk that it could frighten a few pedestrians! :P

Actually Alfred, the door bars, could represent a set of lockable set of bullet-proof-glass doorst

 

There is a lorry that parks up in a lay by, near to where I live. On the rear of the artic(ulated) lorry is a photograph of a bull; standing in the empty trailer.

 

As for the side of the van how's about the ice cave corridor?

 

You might think twice about SMIDSY, if you saw this on the road!

I might, if I knew what SMIDSY was! I gather it's something to do with motorcycles, but that's all I know. :ph34r:

You're absolutely right...It's an acronym for Sorry Mate I Didn't See You!

 

This is due to the fact that cars/lorries/buses/vans can't see cyclists/motorbikes/pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. Typically found at t-junctions and roundabouts. This is usually caused by a lack of attention/high speeds/poor visibility/bad mirror usage/low level sun/foggy and frozen windscreens, bad A-pillar design and not forgetting driving rain because door windows and mirrors don't have wipers. :(

 

So as someone who has experienced both sides of this; I can say it is everybody's responsibility...

It was a robot on Robot Wars, in the 7th wars.
