RSA's adverts blame victims

The Road Safety Authority's 'Crashed Lives' advert shows the tearful father of a man run down and killed by an articulated lorry blaming his son for his own death because he was not wearing a fluorescent jacket; no blame is attached to the driver of the lorry.

The man was walking quite legally and properly at the side of the road.

There is no legal obligation to wear luminous clothing, and in fact very few people do.
