Butlins have advised that the rules for the dodgems have been tightened to avoid visitors from injuring themselves or others and have gone to the extreme of ordering staff to ban any visitor who ignores the no bump rule.  It appears they are concerned about potential legal claims for whiplash.
I find this hard to believe and consider that Butlins have gone a little to far!  I very much doubt that anyone would be successful in pursing a claim for personal injury, as they would have to prove fault of the other "driver" and establish a level of impact to cause injury.  I understand that whilst similar claims have been pursued before now, none have been successful.  Long may that continue and that of the bumper cars and fantastic childhood memories!
