10 May Update:
A very balanced critique of the advertisement appeared in today’s Age newspaper.
There is some irony to this advertisement as the Honda Accord Euro that I sold in February was one used in this ad!
It is of concern that the car DOES NOT have its right indicator on.
I’m sure that exonerating a car driver essentially on the basis of “Sorry mate I didn’t see you”, even with a speeding motorcyclist, will generate complaints amongst the motorcycling fraternity. A driver texting may have been a more realistic scenario!
FWIW -the car was bought by Max Action Vehicles who provide vehicles for all types of advertising.
