PostSubject: Australian Safety Ad   Thu Nov 25, 2010 10:36 am

caution, graphic depictions

Great Australian Ad Campaign!



This needs to passed around to every human being who has the keys to a vehicle and the capability of driving while under the influence with impaired judgement and the possibility of causing a life changing incident to happen to everyone he or she comes in contact with while in this condition.


This is perhaps one of the most intense commercials that I've ever seen and damn well made. I hope that by passing this along to others, that it will make a difference and if just one life is saved, it will all be worth the effort to simply hit "send" and maybe save a life today or tomorrow or in the future.

I think Australia should be complimented on having the guts to "tell it like it is" and get this campaign out to all of its licensed drivers and to air it on TV...it is very moving and very life like so it has a very strong impact. Please click on link


BE WARNED THAT THIS IS VERY GRAPHIC

You're right. That's very graphic. And very sad. I know some will think me insensitive and generalizing, but too bad. Anyone who operates a motor vehicle when they are impaired by alcohol or drugs is a stupid !@#$%$#@!@#$. And no, the board didn't censor it. I did. I don't usually talk that way, especially in public.

I have no sympathy whatsoever for people who drive/ride impaired. I feel bad for the people they injure, maime and kill and their and their victims loved ones.

And no I don't drink. I have and I never got behind the wheel or handle bars while I was impaired.

I echo Hardcore Rider's comments 100%.

One difference however -- I still drink (probably to excess), but I have my first drink where I want to wake up the next morning.

And you don't operate a motor vehicle while you do it. I have no problem with people who drink, even to excess. So long as they don't hurt others, I think people should be able to do as they please. Not hurting others is the key.
