This video produced by Transport Accident Commission Victoria (http://www.tac.vic.gov.au) is just one more on a long list of effective PSA’s coming out of Australia.
It’s an effective tool to not only clearly show the effects of a crash, but also how much difference just lowering your speed by 8 kms/hr can have on an otherwise tragic outcome.
Two of our regular D.I.A.D. presenters are motorcyclists; one is a motor officer and worked in crash scene reconstruction for many years, the other is a 27-year-veteran fire fighter who often was on scene picking up the pieces after a crash such as this. This video combined with their personal experiences helps our teen audiences appreciate the full impact of the difference in a second or two and a few kilometres per hour.
