More precisely, someone thought that was funny less than eight weeks after a tipper truck killed four people in Bath —something local and awful enough that the BEP felt worth covering themselves. A truck crash in which the driver and the company chairmain have been charged for Manslaughter on. Think about that: if the police not only charge the driver with something worse than "Causing death by careless driving", but even the company owner with manslaughter, there must be evidence of a set of wilful decisions resulting in what even the police consider to be killings. Not accidents: killings.
Yet the BEP thinks lorry safety is something worth having a laugh about.
Whoever wrote that article didn't look through their archives for keywords like "HGV and life-changing injuries"
They've certainly never heard the scream someone makes as an HGV drives over them.
On a bicycle, what's likely to kill you is an HGV.
And the Evening Post thinks this is funny enough to make a joke out of on April 1.
Anyone who looks at the web site should immediately download the Adblock plugin (Firefox, Chrome) so the evening post doesn't get that advert placement revenue.
As for the Bristol Traffic site? After this post we refuse to place any links to Bristol Post articles. Ever.
Please pull the article and post an apology for such a tasteless story.
