BBC presenters lecture on road safety while not looking at the road

A BBC road safety series has been criticised for having its presenters drive while looking at the camera in an episode focussing on distraction.  The AA accused BBC2’s How Safe are Britain’s Roads? of setting a bad example.

I would love to.....

Take both of these "Experts" on the back of my CBR125R and see how "Expert" they really are, Then I would take them on my Busa and see how "Expert" they really are! But then again, I would also like to take a few Council/Road planners on the back and "educate" them. I can but Dream.

Good idea Snev and if I took them on some of the roads round my way, they would think they were on a rodeo bull!

Is it just me, or is a seat belt not being worn by the presenter in the photo accompanying this article? BBC displaying their usual incisive reporting.......... 

In the words of an ex BBC employee, "Now then, now then, in at thirteen - ME!"

BBC

The BBC lost the plot! The presenter is not wearing seatbelt; the research is bad it show how things can be manipulated to impress viewers....things are bad in our hipocrite society! SHAME!

Seatbelt

From watching the show, I think she was wearing a seatbelt, it's just that in the picture she is leant forwads slightly and her hair is covering the it, plus a black seatbelt over a black jacket doesn't really stand out.

I hate to be an anorak, but I have studied the picture more closely. She's NOT wearing a belt, if you look at the line a belt would take across her jacket and under the hair, there is no ridge or other disruption to the natural formation of the lines that occur. Oh feck me, I sound like a real sad b'stard, but if the Beeb are going to ponitificate about road safety, lead by example. On a lighter note, it turns out Freddie Starr did NOT eat a hamster. It was a 14 year old beaver.
