Although the story here is tragic, this nonetheless is the complete list of road safety campaigns that I look forward to seeing:
(1) This.

A drink-driver who killed a father and son in a motorway crash was performing a sex act on himself minutes before the collision, a court heard.

The court heard that Hussain’s erect penis was exposed when motorists came to his aid after the crash.

Judge Andrew Blake told him: “At the least it must have been a symptom you were not giving your full attention to driving.”

Especially given that "erect penis" occurs later on in the report.

Why do news outlets fear the use of words like fellatio and masturbation? "Sex act" sounds tawdry and is also annoying when one has to work out quite exactly what was going on.

The word "masturbation" has four whole syllables, far too many for the modern media to expect its audience to understand, but "wanking" is too rude, so they resort to euphemism.
