    Speeding Advert

    I find that speeding radio advert with the kid really annoying:

    "If you hit me at 40 there's an 80% chance i'll die, hit me at 30 there's and 80% chance i'll live"

    I can't help but think, if she croassed the road properly (stoped, looked and listened) or if she wasn't in the road in the first place, then no one would have to hit her!

    Missed the point? Me?

    OK, so how many experiments were carried out under controlled conditions to get accurate percentages?

    Do you really think they asked for a thousand volunteers and then saw whether they lived or died when they were hit at different speeds?

    Sorry, but it is just complete bulls**t!

    And then they have the cheek to air that crap at the tax payers expense!

    Whatever way you look at it, surely the message is to not hit people at any speed?

    But it makes it sound perfectly acceptable to hit someone at 30, because they have a good chance of living through it.

    Also a life is a life and once it has been taken, there is no bringing it back! A childs life is no more important than an adults life.

    Am I reading too much into the whole thing?

    i think the point is most roads are 30mph limits, people will often drive at 40mph on these,
    kids are kids and will run out in the street, nothing will ever stop this, hence the advert,
    they would have got the figures from somewhere not made them up,

    although i think people should just drive sensibly most dont and if the advert stops 1 child getting killed it has to be worth it really


    and if that advert annoys you, think of the double glazing one...."ya buy on ya get one free, i say, ya buy one ya get one free" etc etc, now thats a pointless advert.....who calls these people???

    When an accident happens the police are involved the police can work out what speed the vehicle was traveling at then log all the information. If the person lives or dies that would be recorded.

    Thats where the figures come from

    I don't drive on the pavement so the least she could do is look where she is going.

    Why don't they teach the problem and not the after effect.
