    I think they are also trying to pretend that everyone who responded to their silly poll is a supporter of their aims:biggrin:.

    God it’s awful news, and they picked music to emphasise how awful it is.

    It's good to see the fairfuel group coming in for criticism from Road Danger Reduction Forum (RDRF) following publication of the results of the survey. Strikes me the cyclists who filled in the poll expressing opposite views to that required by FairFuel may have skewed the results to be a little less horrifying than they would otherwise have been! http://road.cc/content/news/234582-...rried-out-fuel-price-campaign-group-finds-all

    Pasted from CHAIRRRDF on Twitter
    1. This kind of bigotry obviously feeds into the already excessively bad driving of the unjustifiably entitled motorist http://road.cc/content/news/234582-daily-mail-survey-cyclists-carried-out-fuel-price-campaign-group-finds-all … . Need to point out that (a) testing doesn't bring drivers up to level of non-violence of cyclists, (b) driver taxation does not cover external costs of motoring, (c) helmet usage does not reduce casualty rates, (d) hi-viz doesn't either, and is an excuse for drivers not watching out, as well as (e) offences already exist for cyclists. The "road safety" industry like @roadsafety @Road_Safety_GB @PACTS
    @LRSC_tweets @Brakecharity should be fighting this prejudice and bigotry, but doesn't because it's part of the problem. + "driving instructors" , "safety engineers" etc., etc.
