    This is the EXACT reason why there is that little user's manual riveted with a chain into the cab of the bobcat. I caught one of my guys with his brother in the cab of the loader one day.. not as bad.. but I still had to reinforce my no rider rule.

    Poor kid, and poor parents. My heart goes out to that family.

    That's awful. Looks like it was a landscaper, too. Should've known better.

    I had a customer who had a cousin over, and the cousin brought his 2 small children to run around the job site. I almost had to get ugly with him to get his kids off the site.

    I'm not sure why there's a presumption of safety in and around these vehicles.
