This is one I can relate to, I dont agree people should be charged for any of the services provided.
However if they did arrive safe & sound but did not inform people they need a dam good talking to about being common curtiousy and THEIR responcibilities to the others and the possible implications if their actions.
This is exactly the point. People should not
be charged for the use of the emergency services, as said it would put lives at risk.
But if they have arrived safely and not informed anyone they have wasted a large amount of the rescues services time and money. Why shouldn’t the CG/RNLI etc be able to recoup money from people who abuse the services?
It’s about the same mentality as making a prank 999 call.
