We need to take a cue from them, that was a great video. That compilation of crashes and whatnot was rough to watch, despite all being staged. It's unfortunate the "shock factor" doesn't stick in our minds longer.
I don't drink alcohol, never have. I tell people that may drink and drive, that I don't care if they kill themselves but my grandchildern may be out there.
One of my best friend was killed by a driver who claimed to have a glass of wine during dinner. He fled the scene and returned half hour later because his number plate had dropped off at the scene of the accident. According to the police, his eyes was bloodshot, his face was flushed, and he smelled of alcohol when he was arrested. If he had just one drink, as he claimed..it had to be a very big glass. During the trial, he claimed that he had lost control of the car, but didn't realised that he had hit 2 cyclists, and drove off desipite the fact that his bonnet and roof was dented and his windshield was cracked.

And in full disclosure, if I could figure a way to make google a less intrusive presence in my online experience, I would. But you pick your battles...
