watched the whole thing.

1/4 of it is dumb ass pedestrains not looking when crossing the street and walking right into a path of a moving vehicle, 1/4 of it is police chase videos (how does this remind us to drive safe again?), 1/4 is just pure dumb luck accidents tire blowing out or driver has siezure, the last 1/4 is distracted or idiotic driving.

Yeah, I can sorta see that.. but it's obviously for shock value.

My post was more about baby's smashing into the windshields/kid getting hit with the defibrillator/mom being run down and bloody on the ground.

Always see these videos, this one is just about all them put into onw, but always reminds me of the dangers.

These videos/ PSA's should be played on public television on the daily to get young drivers, experienced drivers, and pedestrians to be aware of the effects that cars accidents from not paying attention or horsing around can cause. Yea its graphic but that's one way to get the point across and wake some of these drivers up.

more impressive/emotional if it wasn't loaded with the 'stupid ones' (i.e. car chases etc)
