As far as I know, the hardware is no different than a standard platter drive
You don't know very far then, do you? But yes, a secure rewrite of the full device should wipe the flash to the point where some serious lab equipment is needed to recover anything from the device.

On the flip side, taxi drivers have many more hours behind the wheel [aka sleep deprivation]. I thinks it's fair to say that there are many factors which contribute to both raise and lower a taxi's risk of getting into an accident.
So far we've only come up with factors that raise the risk. What are the factors that lower it?

Quit being so pedantic. It's obvious that they meant one of these.
