    Very well done, the look on the driver's face at the "end" is perfectly smug. Seems like the ad is more about inattention than it is speeding, though.

    wow, very well done.

    we had some safety/seatbelt ads a little while ago in the uk. people not wearing seat belts is a massive killer.

    here's a link to one that always makes me cringe. warning: dont view if you're eating :eek:

    I agree somewhat, but I think the point gets through all the same. Speeding increases the risk that a moments inattention has a fatal result.

    That was almost horrible to watch. Drive carefully everyone, and do remember to always wear a seatbelt!

    I am big on wearing seatbelts, and was really glad when Maryland made it a law. I'm sure the vast majority of folks are better protected by wearing a seatbelt.

    That being said, my sister's life was most likely saved because she wasn't wearing hers. A delivery truck made a sudden left in front of her (she was doing about 45mph at the time), and she totalled her Audi. Had she been wearing her seatbelt, the policeman said her chest would have been completely crushed by the steeling column (which was embedded in the seat). As it was, she was kinda tossed across the front seats and, while pretty banged up, she survived. She wouldn't wear a seatbelt for years after, and says she still thinks about it every time she buckles in.
