Misgivings over AA accolades

Peter Clay’s analysis of the road rescue scene is misleading on two counts: firstly, he attributes the AA’s record of recruitment of l .8 million new members since 1993 to “the 4th Emergency Service” campaign. He fails to report that from August 1 1994, when the AA prised the Vauxhall contract from the RAC, all new Vauxhalls have been sold with an AA membership attached – l.l million cars to date, excluding the company’s used car scheme, Network Q.

Secondly, the accolade for fastest road rescue call-out time should go to Britannia Rescue (33 minutes), not Green Flag (35 minutes), as stated.
