LIGHTS FOR PERAMBULATORS. The perambulator is recognised as a I vehicle and must after dark carry a white light in front and a red light in j all parts of the country other than the 1 London district. This new dignity has been conferred by the Home Office order which came into force on Monday. The question was dis- cussed by the Hitch in. Herts, police re- cently, a.nd the Home Oflice reply was "The word 'vehicle' includes perambu- lators." When does a perambulator become a "vehicle"" is an interesting conundrum, because, as everyone knows, all vehicles when under proper control use the road and not the pavement. Recent police cases show that the police think t.hat the perambulator remains, in spite of this, a pavement-using vehicle, which' is an anomaly. The further question arises—which is the front aaid which the rear of a pram ? Perhaps the Home Office will oblige with a ruling. The Head Constable of Cardiff stated to a press representative that strictly speaking the pram was not legally en- titled to be on the footway, and was therefore defined as a vehicle. But as it ha.d been permitted to use the footways —on sufferance—for BO long, and was not a vehicle which regularly used the road, he (the Head Constable') did not inter- pret the lighting order as applying to prams, and would not enforce it against them.
