Fear-based message hits college campus

A couple days ago,the University of North Texas' KNTU Radio,carried a spot which I believe was from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.Basically,they slammed "small fuel-efficient vehicles".The spirit of the piece was that if you owned and drove a high mpg car,you were flirting with death.---------- I don't know if this is a backdoor move to cast an unfavorable light on the new 35-mpg CAFE standards.I thought it interesting that something would be broadcast,unilateraly,with no forum for rebuttal,nor no real context for which the claims were made.--------- Anyone seeing stuff like this in the media?
