BBC under fire for Top Gear's 'glorification' of speeding - Scotsman.com News

Councillor Mike Raeburn, convener of Grampian Fire and Rescue Joint Board, has accused programme makers of being "totally irresponsible" and is asking Scotland's transport minister, Stewart Stevenson, to intervene.
The councillor has demanded details of its safety management structure, but claims the BBC has refused to release it to him.
A Scottish Government spokesman said it was determined to reduce accidents on Scotland's roads

No worries, with Scotland's insane energy policy no one will be able to watch moving pictures north of the border in a year or so.


What on earth is the programme "safety management structure"?

I worked near Aberdeen something like twenty years ago, i.e. well before Top Gear. The driving around there was some of the scariest that I had ever seen, too many young kids with too much money and able to but fast cars. Perhaps if Grampian Police got out on the road, policing rather than sitting in Talivans might also help.
