Farmers' HelpPoint Anti-Bike Ad Gets Slammed

When Statefarm came out with an ad that demeaned cyclists, the outrage from readers at Streetsblog, Grist and ourselves was such that the company decided to pull the commercial. Now Streetsblog are taking on another erroneous ad, this time from Farmers HelpPoint and, judging by their readers’ initial responses, this one may even be seen as worse than the State Farm one. What do you guys think?
