England flag driving rules are 'health and safety nonsense' as firms ban patriotic act

TV host Aggie Mackenzie said she doesn’t understand how flying a flag on a car would “threaten health and safety” as companies start to ban the patriotic act. She made the comments on GB News who were discussing the matter as firms crackdown on flag wavers.

Ms Dewberry said: “I think it’s quite nice actually to celebrate if we want to.”

Ms Mackenzie replied: “I do as well. After all our terrible time last year its time to come out of the woods and celebrate and be a bit lighter about these things

“It’s a bit of fun isn’lt it. It’s also a connector thing, a unifying thing as well.

“I think if you are going to support England and show you’re supporting it, that’s a good connector between people, that’s great.

However, large flags could obscure a drivers vision which could deter them from identifying road hazards.

Graham Conway, general manager of Select car leasing said: “Showing your support with a flag, scarf or mascot won’t be a problem for most.

“But it’s important to make sure the driver’s vision is never impaired by anything you attach to your vehicle.

“Not only could it risk causing an accident, but it could also hit you in the pocket.

“If you’re planning on flying a flag or attaching a mascot to your motor, make sure it can’t pose a risk to you or anyone else.”

Back in 2018, Bradford Council also ordered 8,500 staff to remove the flags from council vehicles in case “someone is offended”.

Taxi drivers in Cumbria were also told they could face an investigation for flying flags during the 2018 World Cup.
