Australian Drunk Driving Ad Campaign

Australian Drunk Driving Ad Campaign

Today I received an email from a friend that I think should be shared with anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car.  It is the hardest-hitting, in-your-face video I think I've ever seen, and the timing couldn't be better, with the holiday season approaching.

As the father of a daughter that just turned 16 last week, and is now driving, it hit home especially hard with me.  This holiday season, while attending the various social functions, take a moment and think about this video before making the decision to get behind the wheel after having a few drinks.

While this post is not real estate related, I felt that if it were posted to the AR community, and shared with many, maybe, just maybe, it could save a life.

Please note, this video has some very graphic parts to it.  So, if you have a "queasy stomach", you may want to think twice before watching it.

I'd like to see one of the major brewers run an edited version of this during prime time or maybe college and pro football games. This is a very powerful message.

Bob, Thanks for sharing the ad.  For a long time I have thought they should run ads like this, and worse, on TV, in driver's training, in the drivers' license line when you have people's undivided interest for sometimes an hour while they wait (we should have to watch these type videos every time we renew our license).  I also think they should start showing them in school long before kids start taking driver's training.  I've wondered who to contact to try to get something started.  Someone suggested Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.  I'm guilty of "thinking" about it, but not acting on it.

I think forwarding this video will be great especially at this time of year.  Thanks again.

Australia's had a problem with drinking and driving and it's good to see that they've put a lot of effort into reducing the offenses.  I remember going to the airport in Melbourne in 2000 and seeing numerous cars off to the side of the highway.  My friend informed me that they belonged to drunk drivers apprehended the night before.

Now THAT would be an great super bowl commercial.  We should start a campaign to get it aired at half time.  America needs to see this.
