Practicing safe driving techniques is important to keeping both yourself and others protected while on the road. Despite its importance, though, many forget to drive safely, especially when they're rushing around or frustrated by the higher traffic volume.
Following gatherings with friends and family, driving while impaired, fatigued, or distracted can put you and others on the road in jeopardy. A video posted by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) in Victoria, Australia serves as a good reminder that driving safely should always be at the top of your priority list.
A Shocking TAC Campaign Video Reminds Drivers to Drive Safely
The video posted by the TAC to celebrate its 20-year anniversary in 2009 is shocking, but compelling. Filmed with the emotional song "Everybody Hurts" playing in the background, the video offers images of friends, family, and coworkers partying, talking, and laughing together.
But then the video takes an ugly turn. The people get in the car and the consequences are disastrous. The camera shows DUI arrests, car wrecks, tears, and destroyed vehicles.
