Online PR News – 23-February-2010 – – Stockport, United Kingdom (February 19, 2010) - Peppa Pig is undertaking a nationwide UK theatre tour beginning next month (February 2010). It is unlikely that five year old Peppa will not be wearing a seatbelt as she travels between venues with fellow performers.
For Peppa has been accused of being a bad influence on her legion of young fans. She has been spotted many times on TV out in the family car, and like her parents and brother she has not been restrained by a seatbelt. Following a complaint, from now on she will be properly restrained. One of Peppa's legion of young fans was refusing to wear a seatbelt after noticing that Peppa was not wearing hers.
A personal injury solicitor from claimssolicitors.co.uk points out that not only was Peppa risking serious injury but, in the event of any accident claims, the vehicle's insurers could deduct up to 50% of any injury payout made to Peppa of her family. "The Courts take the view that drivers and passengers have a duty to comply with the law and to protect themselves, and can reduce injury claims and compensation paid on a sliding percentage scale depending upon the circumstances," he says.
For those of you who are over the age of five and not the parents of young children - Peppa Pig is a character in Channel 5 and Nickelodeon TV. Programme makers Astley Barker Davies has recently decided to portray Peppa and her family wearing seatbelts when in the car in future and is spending three months reanimating scenes in old episodes.
