Speeding- No one thinks big of you

A video that speaks all.

A good reminder that speeding kills. The uncountable number of lifes lost because of the actions and lack of responsibility of drivers. Speeding doesn’t make you look good or macho. Think of your loved ones and how you would feel if anything happen to them, think about the people at risk because of your driving and how their loved ones would grieve for them. The guilt will follow you all your life and kill you slowly day by day. Don’t make that mistake. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Also do not get distracted when driving.

This is by so far the best and most touching speeding advertisement I’ve seen throughout my life. It seems wrong to be impressed by the video due to the solemness and message behind the video thus I will not rate. Countries should definately use this video as an advertisement to remind drivers that speeding only brings harm and danger to the public.

The clips of different accidents really go well together with the song- My Immortal by Evanescence. The choice of song is good. It just reaches out and touches the heart.

Grim facts:

According to RTA, Australia, in NSW speeding is a factor in about 40 per cent of road deaths. This means around 200 people die each year from speeding in NSW. Speeding was a factor in the deaths of 1049 people over the five years 2002–2006. In addition to those killed, more than 4700 people are injured in speed-related crashes each year.The cost of speeding is not only a human one. Speed-related crashes cost the community around $780 million each year.

According to statistics, reducing your speed by an average of 1mph will cut accident frequency by 5%. It is also found that in 44% of fatal accidents, the driver at fault was killed.

Interesting bits (to lighten up the mood):

The Isle of Man is the only place in the world without a general speed limit.

In Germany, over 50% of the autobahn system remains free from speed limits
