The original article is non-english, but here's a blog summary:

Gov'ment Tells Dutch To Clean Their Cars
If you sell cargo nets and bungee cords in the Netherlands, your ship just came in. The Dutch Secretary of Transportation, Karla Peijs, has decreed that loose objects are no longer allowed in Dutch cars, as everything that isn't tied down might become a projectile in the event of a crash. So starting next January, drivers unlucky enough to be caught with an open glove compartment, a handbag on the floor, or an unsecured book on the backseat, will face hefty fines.

And because sudden sneezing spells also pose a traffic-safety risk, next year Peijs will undoubtedly legislate the maximum allowable number of dust particles in Dutch cars, delighting vacuum-cleaner salesmen everywhere.

This is what happens when you run it through babelfish:

Peijs want prohibition on loose spullen in the car umbrellas, pile up and other objects can swing round as from 1 January no longer loose in the car. At a collision the objects perilous situations can look, find cda-minister Karla Peijs of movement. For this reason she has incorporated a prohibition on loose objects in the new vehicle regulation in the car. The inspection insisted already longer on a prohibition, because botsproeven appear that loose objects can such a strength get at an abrupt stopper that them to times as much as twenty their own weight to adopt. That can ensure serious lesion. ' healthy verstand ' he who has loose objects in its car can get a fine. But there no list of prohibited objects comes, because that is ' unfeasible ', Peijs say spokesman Yvonne Cologne ear. It is also a question of healthy verstand. Speelgoedbeertje on the guarding beam are not possible much angry, but he who for example pieces have tool on the back seat lie a sanction risks. For the support for the new rules this autumn starts a campaign for consciousness-raising. Peijs take measures still more in its vervoersregelement. Thus children under the 1 meter 35 must use approved kinderzitje or zittingverhoger. This rule results from European legislation. However, some exceptions apply because transporting children would become after for example verjaarspartij differently impossible (read the press bulletin of the ministry of movement). The House of Commons must approve the vehicle regulation of the minister still. That happens after the summer.


I don't fully understand what babelfish is saying, but it does seem that the law has not yet been approved.

That's nuts. :-b Don't they have more important things to do, rather than worry about "projectiles" in cars? :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
