   I agree with this whole-heartedly.  Are you in Canada or the UK?

   Regarding faulty burglar alarms, I think that laws should be passed
   prohibiting their sale unless the products have been tested and
   have demonstrated safety against false alarms.   The testing
   should be done by independent researchers, and the results should
   be published in peer-reviewed journals.   Unless such standards
   sale of these products should be outlawed, and all deficient products
   installed in homes and autos today should be confiscated.

   These products are a serious public health hazard.
