Why Did Headlines Turn Dry Report Into Controversial One Demanding ‘Let Older Drivers Run Red Lights’? – Forbes
The Daily Express was the only national newspaper to report on updated recommendations from the Older Drivers Task Force, an arms-length body created in 2014 and part-funded by the Department for Transport.
On December 2, the newspaper revisited the story with a new headline: “Let older drivers run red lights without getting points – controversial report.”
This “controversial report”—which had been described by the Daily Express as nothing of the kind a week earlier—does not mention red-light-running.
