Anyone heard the 'road safety' campaign being rammed down our throats on BFBS radio at the moment? Where do they get their statistics from and is it legal to use false statistics or misinformation in a so called 'information ads'. The claim repeated in every one is that a soldier is 'twice as likely to be killed in a road accident than a civvy'. Quite a claim, as is the one where a soldier is described as 'setting out on the most dangerous mission of their career', before explaining that they are about to get in their civvy car! Not too sure that stands up in view of the losses in Afghanistan at the moment. I can see the need for road safety campaigns, but making them so silly they can't be believed detracts from any real message they are trying to put across. It gets me that they think soldiers are stupid enough to accept obviously dodgy statistics with out question, and that they would actually spend money on making, and wasting air time broadcasting, such rubbish.
