THE MAN-CATCHER never did catch on. The 1020s safety device “consists of three rollers attached to the radiator of the vehicle. Directly the rollers touch an obstacle, they automatically drop to the ground and push it away.” If the rollers push it away into the path of a tram or into a hole, so be it.
