And Barry knows what he's talking about. For the last ten years he's been Chief Executive Road Safety Officer with Hampshire police, and has lectured in schools and youth clubs about the importance of road safety. He studied road safety for six years at the Geneva Road Safety Institute. He has a certificate in road safety from the European Association of Road Safety Officers, and he regularly attends road safety seminars around the world. He was guest speaker at this year's Five Nations Road Safety Summit, and has contributed greatly to the International Road Safety Accord, which was ratified this year at a special meeting of the United Nations Road Safety Committee. He has written seven books on road safety, appeared in fourteen instructional road safety videos, sang lead vocals on a charity road safety record which got to number one in 1994, and he once met His Holiness the Pope, who said the words 'road' and 'safety' to him.
What's more, he did twenty years in Parkhurst for firearms offences, so when he says get off the fucking road, you'd better just do as he says, okay?
