Awesome camera work.
Good message.
Though I wish they said "reckless lane splitting increases the risk."

So the TAC (Transport Accident Commission) in Australia is pretty famous for provocative road safety ads. They're shocking, graphic, no-excuses: really powerful stuff.

They did a roundup of their ads, focusing on DUI. It's very long, and set to REM's "Everybody Hurts". (NOTE: It's somewhat graphic - the first few minutes is fine, but there are scenes of accidents. Nothing really gory, but then it shows someone plowing through an intersection and hitting a cyclist, things like that.)


What I think is interesting about the above is that it randomly, normally includes motorcycles. They're part of traffic, they're part of the risk. So many of our DUI PSAs in the US focus on teenagers and men in sedans. But I think this commercial does a much better job of showing the many, many ways that any driver drinks, and finds their way behind the wheel or handlebars.

They also made a Scooter ad. This one is graphic, too:

For those who don't watch, it shows the accident scene involving a scooter and you hear the realistic moans and cries of a young woman. You see her in the ER being attended to with very mangled fingers and abrasions everywhere. An ER doc speaks to the camera and says "she was only wearing work clothes." The final screen says "What's between you and the operating theatre?"

Strong stuff. :triste:

Thanks for the videos. The video against reckless lane splitting matches why I dare to support ultra-slow lane splitting only between or next to stopped traffic per https://sites.google.com/site/jusjih/motorcycles , never splitting between or next to moving traffic or fast splitting.

TAC Calls on Motorcycle Riders for Safety Tips

Postby governmentdocuments » Thu Dec 01, 2011 2:22 am

The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has taken a new approach to increasing motorcycle safety by urging all riders to send in their own video safety tips online via their motorcycle-focussed website, Spokes.com.au

With the peak riding season fast approaching, motorcyclists are encouraged to film their best safety tips to help keep them and their mates safe on the roads.

Twenty-nine motorcyclists were killed on Victorian roads over the last peak riding season (October 2010-March 2011).

In addition, motorcyclists continue to be overrepresented in serious injury data, with riders accounting for 20 per cent of all TAC claims costs (includes no-fault and common law claims) per year despite representing just 3.7 per cent of all vehicle registrations in Victoria.

It is the first time the TAC has called on riders to share video tips online – in the past, riders have submitted their tips in writing only.

TAC Chief Executive Officer, Janet Dore, said it was important motorcyclists shared their experiences with each other – particularly when it came to safety.

"We know that most people learn a lot from their peers and we want to encourage riders to help each other stay safe on the roads," Ms Dore said.

Tips can include hints on buying the right protective clothing and equipment, bike-maintenance tips, or suggestions on helping riders stay safe in varied weather conditions.

A panel of judges will select eight finalists whose videos will be loaded onto the Spokes.com.au website for the public to vote on the ultimate winner of the grand prize.

The winning video tip will be rewarded with a double VIP experience at the upcoming 2011 IVECO Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix on Phillip Island from October 14-16.

The prize includes three-day grandstand tickets, a helicopter ride above the Phillip Island Circuit, a guest lap of the circuit in a BMW Course car, and a HART motorcycle training course.

Two runners up will also receive a three-day grandstand pass to the MotoGP event and a pair of Alpine Stars riding boots.

"We want as many riders as possible to send us their tips, so start thinking, get creative and help improve rider safety," Ms Dore said.

Reviving this thread of great PSAs.

I ran across this one:



Essex (UK) police reach out to college campuses to give classroom & range instruction to students who own motorcycles and scooters. "These riders potentially could be... our casualties of tomorrow. It's important that we try to get this message home to them at an early stage in their riding career." - Pc Jonathan Harman.

What a brilliant use of police outreach. NYPD, are you listening?
