Most of us are familiar with the odd Road Safety Campaign that graces our newspapers and telvisions now and then.
You know, the ones about slowing down so you can be there for your family at the end of the day, or possibly encouraging you to trade in your dodgy rustbucket in exchange for something more safe.
These campaigns are usually commissioned by our governments and they hire an expensive advertising agency to come up with commercials and advertisements that are aimed to scare the pants off us. But over the years, I think they have worked as deaths caused by car crashes have reduced in many first world countries.
However, I found a very simple, yet effective way to promote road safety with a new kind of Road Safety Campaign. One that is very much in your face!

Makes you look twice, doesn’t it?
Yes, it’s a car wreck from an actual fatal car accident, on display outside of a police station on the main highway.
The rough translation from Indonesian into English means the following:
‘Who want’s to join me? Death is always around you. So be careful when driving. Just let me be the victim. Obey the traffic rules’.
A Road Safety Campaign like this this would be politically incorrect in most Western countries, but this powerful scene grabbed my attention like rabid dog wanting to chew off part of my hand.
Somehow, I’m not sure if the drivers involved were following the Road Rules.
But there’s more – check out a similar motorbike memorial display!
