Pay Attention Or Pay The Price!

The following videos might shock you - actually they should do that - but hopefully these will make people, especially the ones behind the wheel, to think at least twice about the consequences of their actions.

Drive slowly!
Don’t drink and drive!
Use the seat belt!

There’s no second chance, so PAY ATTENTION!

The car accident statistics are horrifying, but nobody seems to care about that. Or maybe we are lead to not care about it because in this world, which revolves around money, there’s a profit to be made even out of such accidents - insurance companies, car manufacturers, lawyers, medical institutions, to name just a few…
Did you notice that besides each statistic there’s an “economical cost”, but how can you put a price tag on a human life?!

A. tip
To help curb the number of drunk driving accidents, treating alcohol addictions of those who can’t seem to stop drinking and driving must be made a priority.

Why there’s no interest to improve the transportation system whatsoever?
It’s killing more people than some fancy-name “terrorist attacks” the media is full about, but still we are not doing anything to fix this! Not to mention the environmental cost of keeping this unsafe and polluting system - it’s killing the air we breath and the planet we live on! But that’s not a problem as long as some will fill their pockets out of this… right? NO, it’s so wrong!!
We’ve come so far in terms of technology, but we are using this knowledge to build weapons instead on improving our lives!
Come on, the transportation system is almost the same as tens of years ago… when will we do something about this?!

Drunk drivers should not be given a second chance. There is no reason not to take a taxi, some kind of public transportation or get a friend to take you home. Too many lives have ruined for nothing but stupidness.

Wow! One of my best friends died in a bad car accident just because some people don’t pay attention to what they’re doing

It’s easy to switch off when you are driving home from work, or get distracted by the radio… accidents happen when you couple that with something unexpected (car in front braking suddenly or a child running into the road).

Silly mistakes some time makes horrible accident, videos are nice to watch also be the lesson for bad drivers.

There are definitely some shocking scenes in these videos, but they make a very important point. I think I need to pay more attention when I drive sometimes. I have already given up texting when I drive, because I know how dangerous it can be when you aren’t giving the road your full attention.

Wow! What a nice collection of didactic videos. They are truly educative. Thanks for sharing it make me remember of the great Hollywood movie “Final Destination”

Ya really silly mistakes makes horrible accident.The layout of your blog is attractive.Thanks for sharing.

When you secure a driver’s license,it’s office taught us already the pros and cons of driving through their seminars. I don’t know how they easily forgotten all of its precautionary measures.It’s lack of discipline and negligence on their part, and I don’t know how they passed the tests given to them.

Wow what a great collection of videos.Really very impressive.Silly mistakes some time makes horrible accident, videos are nice to watch also be the lesson for bad drivers.

Okay. I think I”m going to trade in my 2-year-old Mustang GT for a granny wagon.

And I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight.

That’s effective.

As an 18 month old I was in am accident and expected to die. No seatblts rewuired in the 1960’s amarently my head left its shape in the metal glove box of the Peugeot. Since then I have been fussy about blets and never drunk to excess. The guy in the iother car had 10 kids and didnt make it.
These ads are at once shoking - even revolting - but painfully timely.

This is a very sad and sobering collection of videos depicting what can happen if you are driving under the influence or just not paying attention to the road.

While I totally agree that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is wrong I must also add that there are more accidents and deaths in this country caused by people just not paying attention to what they are doing while they are driving.

Take for instance people who “text” while driving, I know there are probably a lot of people reading this who are involved in texting while driving.

Don’t think for a minute that you are any better than someone who had one or two drinks and gets behind the wheel.

Same possibility of a tragic accident occurring, just a different way for an accident to occur.

The car accidents happen every day and the statistic information makes me upset. Every day thousands of people die on the roads and the number of car accidents’ victims increases alongside with the number of cars. Many reasons such as alcohol or inattention are caused by the irrational confidence which can be called “It will never happen with me”. When you know some bad news you sympathize with the people, but you don’t think seriously that you can face with the same. It’s quite usual for the people to be too self-confident, many of us think something like “I’ve drunk only a couple of glasses, I’m fine! I can drive easily.”

Impaired driving is one of Florida’s largest social issues. In 2008 there were 2,978 fatalities on Florida roadways that were alcohol related.

Although most people do not intend to drive home drunk there is no easy answer to know if you are over the limit. There is no way to unequivocally answer this. There are a large number of factors to add into the equation where someone can drink but still remain under the legal limit. Dependent upon the drink consumed, the amount consumed, weight, ones age, and metabolism. However, every drink that you consume can affect your degree of impairment.

You may know that you are impaired in some way by alcohol the night prior, but what about the morning after. It is far more complex to know if you are safe to get behind the wheel the following day. It is just as crucial that people are aware of how long alcohol can stay in your system. Clearly if you are taking in more alcohol then your body is getting rid of chances are you will not be fit to drive the morning after.

The paramount answer would be to not drink and drive. Florida has stringent laws which prohibit driving while intoxicated. In short, first and second offenses are misdemeanors, third or subsequent offense is a third degree felony.

However, your driver’s license can be immediately suspended for six months on the first offense to include high administrative fees.

If you refuse a breathalyzer test, per Florida law your driver’s license is suspended for one year as of the arrest date to include administrative fees. A possible six month jail sentence on the first offense including astronomical fees, second offense could get you a conviction of nine months in jail plus additional fees. A third arrest can afford you a twelve month jail sentence, with thirty days of the jail sentence being mandatory, vehicle impoundment of ninety days and further fees as ordered. Expect a significant increase in your motor vehicle insurance, thus finding competitive quotes will be difficult as insurance companies are hesitant in taking the risk of insuring a driver with a history of a DUI conviction.

I couldn’t watch more than 1 minute of the second video…
Unfortunately there’re many unconsious drivers out there who still have licences and are potencials road criminals.
We have to pay attention, not use cellphones or have the radio to loud…a second of distraction is fatal.

We love our cars and are so used to them that we forget that everytime we jump into them we are risking our lives. Thanks for the reminder.

Ya i too think that drunk drivers should be given harsh punishment so thaat they do not repeat their mistakes again

that 2nd video is horrifying.
absolutely horrifying.

drunk drivers should never be allowed on roads .. no compromise, such people endanger lives of so many people

Viteza = Moarte in cele mai multe dintre cazuri …

There needs to be much more focus on safety but part of that is basic education. Like teenagers who think they can text while driving. Or people who think they are “OK” to drive after 5 or 6 beers. I had a guy call me and say he believes he drives better when he’s loaded because he slows down and pays closer attention.

A drunk drive struck and killed 4 motorcyclists just outside of Omaha last week.

4 Families whose lives are ruined for years to come.

and 1 young man who will most likely spend most of his life in prison for killing 4 people.

Maybe breathalizers should be required at beer stores and maybe on all cars

Some time ago “Anonymous” said that drunk drivers should not be given a second chance. Well, I have a close family member who was the drunk driver and killed a girl when this family member was very young. They have completely turned their life around and have become an amazing person. Regret fills their life even though it has been over 20 years and they wish that they would have been able to turn their life around before something like that happened, but it is what it is.

Sadly, this is not often the case, and a lot of people don’t change even when horrible things like this happen. Our family is proud of the choices this person has made in their life since then, but we can tell that they may never forgive themselves.

Alcohol causes more than 30 percent of all injury world wide. Also it should be noted than this falls under avoidable injuries.

Good collection of videos, certainly gets the point cross, don’t drink and drive.

Thanks for sharing!

I think our government should be very vigilant with regards to drunk-driving or text-driving. A large percentage of the accidents are caused by drunk-drivers or text-drivers and most of the fatalities are children. There should be stricter laws for violators of such crimes. And I believe that internet and media can plat a huge role on promoting and preventing such acts of recklessness.

I never drink alcohol when i am with the car but sometimes i have enough speed to make an accident, now i realize how important is my life.

Drunk drivers should not be given a second chance to drive. There is no reason not to take a taxi and be safe, some kind of public transportation or get a friend to take you home is also an option. Too many lives has been ruined for nothing but stupidness in the our personal system.

Creepy video. Day before yesterday I had an accident, fortunately there were no casualties. I only scrapes and bruises on my legs.

I couldn’t watch more than 1 minute of the second video…

I wish they had commercials like that in Romania, too. There’s not enough to be said or done about this behaviour.

I recommend using the drunk driving idea. Maybe start off with a kid drinking a beer and then getting into a crash and then show a “What could have happened” type thing where the kid refuses a beer and drinks a water and then drives home safely. Just an idea off the top of my head, but i hope its something you can work with. Good luck!

It is always important to use the seat belt and if you have a baby, make sure that you buy a baby car seat, it is for their safety. Thanks for sharing these videos, it is a great reminder to always drive safely.

Drink driving, speed, drug use all play a big part in road traffic fatalities - and many believe that mobile phone use while driving is just as serious a problem
