So in the US you have this latch thing on a petrol pump which allows the pumper to stand and watch the pump, err, pump. Here, in the UK, those latches are all removed. As in, the holes and stuff are all there - but no latch.
So what is the reason behind this? I love those latches. Why can’t we have them in the UK? Is it for some safety reason that does not apply in the US? How does the latch/no latch debate pan out in other countries?
