Sir: May I, through your columns, thank the anonymous parents of Laura, Tracy, Adam, Andrew, William and Donna ("Poignant video that says: speed does kill", 8 May).

By allowing us to share the pain of their loss for just a few seconds they did a great deal towards helping save the lives of children they will never know.

As a fast driver (now slowing to think) I would like them to know that the "kill your speed" TV commercial was not only very moving but I suspect very effective, for if it slows me I can't be the only driver affected.
