Road horror accidents

April 24, 2008

I’m all for ‘generating an emotional response from the public, to “shock” the public into taking action and making the right choice with regard to their driving behaviour’ (Road Safety Council spokesman), I’m just not sure if the realistic accidents spread throughout the island are the way to go.  According to the article in today’s Royal Gazette, there were several calls to 911 reporting the fake accidents and motorists stopping to help.  I’m sure they also caused a few fender benders as drivers took their eyes off the road to gawk at the fake accidents. Case in point: today’s front page picture in Royal Gazette.

Can we find a way to make the public more aware without causing more accidents in the process?
