Geez, sounds like the Grinch is warming up for Christmas. Why put such a negative twist on something so wholesome and positive. These young parents would never jeopardize the most precious part of their existence. Compare the love and attention that these kids are receiving from working parents to so many inner city kids who have working parents that can't be with them while they are away, and then tell us who is really at risk.
Negating all risks in life is virtually impossible and trying to do so robs us of some of life's most treasured experiences. Riding in the back of my Dad's pickup with him when my Mom and sisters picked us up at the end of the day, or to go home for lunch is something I still recall. Was it dangerous? Sure, but I can still see his smiling face and that memory of a fun time is worth so much in the scheme of life.
Safe operator enclosures allow young parents the opportunity to stay closer to their children's lives which is a luxury that I didn't have when I was a young parent working long hours to sustain our farm. I would give anything to relive that period in my life and have my kids to visit with or watch sleep in the relatively safe and quiet of a combine cab. I'm betting that when these kids grow up and if they move away, when they come home to visit and Dad is combining they will be making a beeline to go ride with Dad and relive those happy childhood memories.
