Are Americans paranoid?
Today, Lindsay and Michelle discuss why a few towns in the United States are banning a common winter activity for kids!
Most Americans live in places that get snow in the winter. As children, they probably went sledding at least a few times. But today, some places are trying to ban sledding because it can be dangerous! Towns with sled hills are afraid somebody will get hurt, and the town will be sued.
Some lawsuits are justified, but there is such a thing as a “frivolous lawsuit,” which is a lawsuit that has little merit but is being pursued for money, rather than justice.
What do you think about banning sledding?
What do think about suing a “haunted house” park because it’s too scary?
