    Maybe the TAC should make ads like this [media=youtube]3-EDJj-gu2Q[/media]

    Instead of depicting a motorcyclist [URL="]sliding into the oncoming path of a 4WD/caravan.[/URL]

    What do you think?

  2. Excellent. Unfortunately, our politicians and bureaucrats don't do "subtle".
  3. :) I like it. The TAC could learn a thing about humour to get a message across.
  4. Awesome ad. Makes all road users seem friendlier. We need this.
  5. That is a top ad. The three best motorcycle safety ads I've seen all came from the UK. Why is that do you think?
  6. Brilliant! Completely belies the stupid assumption that we need shock horror. And wow!, it actually makes road users see motorcyclists as human beings, and take that realisation on board in their road behaviour, rather than just alienating and further endangering motorcyclists!
  7. lol @ the polish government comment

    in the comments not the vid

    Found this video of a behind-the-scenes look at the Named Riders TV advert. I only hope the TAC watch it, maybe they could learn something?

    Nah! They tend to think along the lines of the polish government comment...
  10. It has occurred to me that Doom 3 relied on similar tactics -the easy, 'brute force' method of having nasty stuff jump out at you suddenly.

    For most people, how long did that game remain effective?

    I love them both.

    The first one is beautiful

    "What does it take to be seen... before a scene"

    ************ EDIT you may notice i don't care for TAC that much ***************
    here's another

    You may notice he used his INDICATOR for less then a second while law states it must engaged for at-least 3seconds, "5 seconds when ever possible".

    I feel like I'm taking a stab a TAC at this point

    J-Walking anyone

    5km faster and the bi**h would still be on the sidewalk

    She never looked before walking on the road, you don't see me driving on the sidewalk.

    Does TAC even know the law?
