    Thumbs up Graphic but Excellent Safe Driving Video

    EXCELLENT Safe Driving video!!! Not as graphic as it could have been of course, but I wonder if they show things like this in High School Drivers Ed classes today?

    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=e70_1269960841

    This is reminiscent of the graphic videos they used to show in my High School Driver's Ed class 40 years ago, although this one isn't really as graphic and of course back in the late 1960's, there was no such thing as a traffic camera to catch the accidents in real time.

    Those old Driver's Ed films mostly showed the aftermath, headless torsos, disembowelment and all that - this one is pretty watered down in comparison, but perhaps more effective because there's more real-time shots and a lot of emotional turmoil. The old films were devoid of emotions, pretty much.

    A lot of those look like clips from the UK safe driving videos.

    So many thoughts but the only thing I can think is damn.

    That should be on a continuous loop at every DMV office.

    This brings back many memories of calls I've worked over the years. I had to walk away from my desk for a bit.

    You think you've pushed back those memories until something like that.

    There's a road safety ad running here at the moment that I simply cannot watch. Too many flashbacks to a real incident.
