    The fuel stations I go have an attendant inside that can flip a switch as soon as something happens at the pumps.
    So if a hose breaks the pump can be turned off before very much gas flows out.
    Used to be woman were always getting preoccupied,where they took off with the hose still in the fill pipe.
    However most hoses you have to hold the release to get the gas to flow,when you let up it stops.
    Back in the day the hoses could be locked on, so you wouldn't have to hold it till the tank was full.

    as well as here, you need to pay in advance, no more the attendant simply turns the pumps on for you, unless you are a real good customer they know very well.

    also, i do believe a panic button is installed inside the building as you claim, and automatic fire protection.

    clearly, that country (England perhaps??) needs to get up to speed on controlling thefts.

    also, women of that body type, should wear a moomoo or jeans and a blouse..no need to make us run for the eye bleach.

    I thought when the hose disconnected there is a automatic shutoff valve built in to the coupler for the emergency disconnect.

    What Happens if You Drive Off With the Gas Pump Nozzle Still in the Car?
    By Matt Soniak

    Rest assured that you won’t be causing any fireballs or explosions. The hose that attaches the nozzle to the gas pump is designed to break into two pieces when a certain amount of force is applied to it. Next time you’re at the gas station, check the hose for a metal coupling. That’s the break-away point. Once the hose is broken and you’re off on your merry way, check valves in the hose keep fuel from leaking out and creating a hazard.

    Stimpy,
    There are those Fuel Stops (Diesel) that have not the concern for such trivial need of safety as they have the old school hoses where it breaks at the pump housing. Those run down fuel stops offering discount fuel prices.
    Once in a while we'll see a truck floating down a road with the fuel handle and hose hanging from the open tank (and of course they have no C.B. or speak English).
    I call the events in the video: Instant Karma.

    That makes two of us. Lack of pressure is supposed to cut the power.

    Cyborg MassageUS Patent Issued In 2002

    Hey, we can all use a little pampering, and with the Cyborg Massage System, you can get a hands-free neck massage while you are walking! Or at least, make that free of human hands! Your Cyborg Massage Hand is powered by the air bladders and pumps located in the special shoes you are wearing. As you walk, the pressure on your toe and heel bladders trigger the fingers on this creepy mechanical hand to squeeze and release, squeeze and release, squeeze and release.

    We're not sure if your futuristic Terminator hand will give a great massage or not, but remember, no jumping or the extra pressure may just squeeze the bejesus out of you! Patently Absurd Inventions Archive...click here!

    Toilet Landing LightsUS Patent Issued In 1993

    What happens when you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night? Do you turn on the light and squint, open your eyes and blind yourself or poke around in complete darkness? Have you ever fallen into the toilet because the seat was up but "who knew", it was too dark to see or heard any complaints about missed targets? Well not any more with the extraordinary Toilet Landing Lights! This unprecedented bathroom brainchild can save you from a very embarrassing breakfast conversation by illuminating your way after bedtime, and you know what we mean.

    Waterproof indirect lighting is placed under the rim of the toilet adding a beautiful almost mystical glow to the throne. A switch attached to the lid can signal heads up or safe landing ahead. We suggest pulsing blue airport landing lights to bring you down safely.
