The Commercial is very graphic and may not be suitable

for everyone, but it's the best drinking and

driving message I've ever seen!!!

Very powerful, but alas roughly four and a half minutes longer than the attention spans of the people it's aimed at.

There is also a message for the rest of us about not being afraid to shop the pricks who would take chances like this

I've seen something similar from down under before. Doesn't make it a bad thing though - could do with a few more truthful ads over here, TBH. We fanny around too much.

But as Triangle says, too long for the average viewer I would think - too busy getting another tinny

   I was going to say a similar thing to Irv.  Maybe part of the sixth form curriculum.

The BBC3 film 'Only Stwpd Cowz Txt N Drive' was equally as harrowing. It only seems to be on youtube in 4 bits or on a torrent.

The crash is in the second part HERE

And, of course, far more crashes are caused by failing to pay attention than drink driving.

Puuh, some heavy mind bubbling scenes here and certainly one I'll show my oldest, who is soon to try out for her driving licence.

Message is clear and simple - Don't drink and drive!
I agree with you Alfonso - it's also about the rest of us, stopping this from happening.

Now thats a powerful advert … maybe they should show it over here, if it saves just one life then its worth it.
We've always made a point of not driving if we're drinking, either I drive and the wife has a drink or vice versa.
We believe the drink drive limit should have been made zero a long time ago (no ambiguity then is there?)
