#2419: LeftLockers

Today’s invention is lockers which actually lock.

Overhead lockers in an airliner, to be precise.

Every time we hear about some flight encountering turbulence, somebody has been hurt by a giant carry-on case hitting them on the head.

Recently, people in a crash have allegedly paused during emergency exit to collect their bags from above their seat.

Instead, I suggest that all lockers be remotely lockable by a flight attendant.

If the seatbelt sign is on, the locks are all engaged.

Knowing this, people would generally concentrate on escape, rather than their (replaceable) stuff.
