Another piece of profiteering road safety kit
Read aboutJaguar's new and expensive gadget.
How many times must I point out that after 300 billion driver miles a year, there's less death on the road from all causes than from accidents in the home? Or, so far as cyclists are concerned, the obvious query, why must we have them if there is such a big problem with them? A fair question given the millions of pounds of taxpayer's money being spent on it and given that already 13 have died in 2015 on our roads too.
So this gadget. How much will it cost us? How soon before it's made compulsory? And dare I ask, if Jaguar are so public spirited, why not fit it free of charge or at least at cost?
Don't give up your day job, but more importantly don't just allow another piece of road safety profiteering be forced on drivers either.
