Yes and having someone tell you your child is dead is shocking too, as is witnessing a crash or identifying a body. Speed kills. Some people just love to be outraged. My daughter saw a very graphic video as part of transition year in school. It was shown to 16 year olds. It had a major effect on her, as had the mother who described the after math.
Maybe she will forget in time, but hopefully not.
The ‘shock’ aspect of the ad has caught people’s attention so I reckon its achieved its objective
[Sometimes we need something like this to jolt people out of their complacency !]
I remember being completely stunned by the video below when I first saw it. If you think the one above is shocking, this will have you in tears – it should be compulsory viewing for all learner drivers.
That’s incredible – never seen it before.
These videos are fair game: careless driving, and speeding, costs lives. I find that many drivers seem to think that 30 means 40. And they have the nerve to drive close behind me, trying to incite me to drive faster.
I remember this one from several years ago:
