You mean "sort of graphic". Seriously, it gets way, way worse than that.

Hey Dakez,

Thanks for posting that. I personally don't need to be reminded, but many I'm sure do. Happy Holidays man!

The video is a very good reminder.

At the beginning of this month, I lost a 19 year old nephew to a drunk driver. He was one week shy of his 20th birthday.

I've always been partial to the following "Don't Drink and Drive" video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhSFzflX1zU

At the moment of impact the victim's family's world is turned upside down.

In case folks have trouble with the Facebook vid, here's the Youtube link for the TAC commercial.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2mf8DtWWd8

TAC has their own channel with more videos if anyone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/user/TACVicto...&sort=p&view=0



Nice find, Dakez, thanks for posting it.

There are more informative videos on the topic out there. This one isn't very remarkable.
And it's not a problem to have a drink and drive, just don't drive drunk.

I agree.



This will of course lead to a debate about even having one and then riding.

How do you decide if you have had too many? Do you make that decision after you are drunk?

One is too many in that case. Why would you even want to drink and ride?

Or what about the statement made by one UK academic who was trying to get bikes banned, arguing (quite reasonably, I might add) that riding a motorbike stone cold sober, even in ideal conditions, is statistically more dangerous than driving a car over our drink-drive limit. The latter is illegal, therefore the former should be too, right?

No. NOT right. Riding a motorcycle is NOT dangerous unless the NUT holding onto the handlebars makes it so.

There is nothing reasonable about that fools argument.
