Serious question, are you aware that many shops require anyone that opens a roll-up door open it fully or not open it at all to avoid damage to the doors or to vehicles that travel through them? It is a common problem.

It's a motorized door, which the driver operates remotely by swiping her keycard on a sensor outside the building, and then closes again once she's down the ramp into the garage by pressing a button on the wall.

Most garages in this area with doors, also have gates that only open once the door is fully raised.

I live near the 11foot8 bridge, aka "The Can Opener". The bigger crashes make the local news.

Police: Girl, 4, found beaten; thought her name was 'Idiot' - Story | WTTG

Quote:
Police have arrested a Hot Springs, Arkansas, couple on battery and abuse charges for allegedly zip-tying a 4-year-old girl to her bed as punishment.

Hot Springs police arrested the girl's mother and the woman's live-in boyfriend last week on suspicion of domestic battery, permitting the abuse of a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor. A police report says officers were summoned to the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center after workers there determined the child had been abused.

A police report says the girl had bruises, a black eye, scars and ligature marks on her wrists.

The Sentinel-Record reports the child is now in state custody, along with the couples only child together, an 11-month old. The mother and boyfriend remain in the Garland County jail Tuesday. Four other siblings are with their biological father.

According to the Washington Post when a police officer asked the girl what her name was, she said, "Idiot."

I am willing to sign off on revoking their procreation cards, if you know what I mean. And I'm a libertarian.

I'd be cool with revoking their breathing cards in general.

Also a libertarian, I think.
