Why was he quoted so often in the news media? If there was any safety camera
story his lot were used to balance the official line.
Mainly because he pretended to be rigorous and because pretty much
nobody else has any arguments against research from bodies such as TRL
other than the straight libertarian line. If you look at the number
of quotations it declined pretty rapidly from its peak, especially
after the Which? piece which demolished his arguments.
I was a bit surprised it took them as long as it did to rumble him,
his description as "fraudulent" of every piece of work by TRL with the
single exception of a piece he was able to quote-mine for support,
combined with the complete absence of any peer-reviewed publications
carrying his claims, was a bit of a giveaway.
