People have been bitching and complaining about motorcycle ads so I thought I'd throw up something different. A thread for people with ideas about how to approach motorcycle safety from a motorcyclists perspective. The idea is maybe we could forward on some of the best ideas to the relevant authorities and maybe change what we don't like. At least if it doesn't work, we can say we tried. From a feedback perspective, try to keep it on topic and clean (and constructive). If you don't like an idea, don't say its crap, offer an alternative to the part you don't like or offer advice on why you don't think it would work or help people. Here is the first idea to throw out there. Feel free to pull it to pieces or add other ideas: Driver on the road, hundred things on his mind, meetings, things for home etc. While he's driving he's playing things through his mind like "shit, need to collect the dry cleaning on the way home". He's obviously distracted and in the process, he has a smidsy with a motorcyclist. Nothing happens except the usual "Sorry mate, didn't see you". Another day, same situation, this different distractions, maybe the radio, the gps or his phone. Another smidsy, maybe with a scooter rider this time. Third time maybe a cyclist. Fourth time, same scenario, except this time he pulls out in front of a motorcyclist, guy bounces over the top of the car and is lying on the road. Then cut to a crying wife or something (optional) and/or a message like "If you're driving distracted, its not not a case of if, its a case of when you'll kill someone." or "It takes 1 second to do a head check, but it could cost someone their life. Could you live with the consequences of killing someone?" Second idea maybe aimed at the scooter brigade who ride their scooters fearlessly in suits and shorts. A guy in hospital having tar brushed out of his wounds screaming in agony. Short and sweet with a message like "At 60km/h, an accident on a scooter will remove the skin off your leg. Riding a scooter doesn't make you any less likely to have an accident if a driver doesn't see you. ATTGAT - All the gear, all the time"
