Want to drink and drive? You may want to think again.

Posted in Crashes, FAIL, General, Videos by MrAngry | August 26th, 2010 | 5 Responses |

You’ve seen drinking and driving commercials before. You’ve seen the crashes, the crying and outcome a drunks actions can have on those around them. I have a feeling though that you’ve never seen one like this. Back in 1989 the Transport Accident Commission of Victoria, Australia began a campaign that would most likely be considered to graphic for American television. Over the last twenty years they’ve run ad after ad in an effort to get people to stop drinking and driving. The above video is a culmination of those ads over the last twenty years that will not only make you reconsider that last drink you have before you drive, but may make you reconsider drinking all together. We here at Ridelust.com love fun, horsepower and hoonage as much as the next guy, but when it comes to drinking and driving, we simply have no tolerance. This video wasn’t meant to ruin your day, but make you think… hopefully it worked.

    I couldn’t agree more. Don’t think yourself capable of taking another human life? You just might if you engage in this.

    Hi Ride Lust,

    Thank you for posting a comment on your site about our 20 year campaign. All of us here at the Transport Accident Commission are very proud of the work and what we have been able to help the Victorian Community achieve in reducing road trauma in our state. If our work helps other communities – then the rewards are greater. Thank you and drive safely.

    As graphic as this is, it needs to be shown more everywhere there is a chance people will drive drunk.

    Other countries have it right, quit worrying about hurting someones feelings and side stepping the issue and hit it head on. Maybe if America were as frank and open about a lot of different things we wouldn’t have near the problems that we currently have.
