VIDEO - Drowsy Driving, You Can't Fight Sleep

video iconBetter than singing, turning up the radio, driving with the window down or stopping periodically for exercise, if you are too tired to drive, sleep is the only remedy. A 15 minute nap possibly coupled with consumption of some strong coffee might get you to a point where you can continue for another hour or two. There is no better position to be in than that of being well rested before driving.

VIDEO - Now You See Me

video iconIf you don't check your mirrors, you don't know what you are missing! The UK Automobile Association's Think Bikes Campaign includes this "cheeky" 39 second video to remind drivers that failing to look is one of the major contributing factors for all types of collisions. With the start of better cycling weather in BC, this is something to keep in mind here too.

VIDEO - The Cell

video iconAustralia's Transport Accident Commission in Victoria state has published The Cell, an anti-drugged driving video that is part of a TV advertising campaign there. In their typically hard hitting style the video shows a young male driver taking drugs at a party and the consequences of that choice on the drive home afterward.

VIDEO - Texting While Driving

With the help of actors and special effects, the video graphically shows the crash and aftermath of what could happen when a driver is distracted."

VIDEO - The Distracted Mind

Our brains really do not multitask, they focus on single tasks and when we try to do more than one thing at a time, break these multiple tasks into single tasks totally focused on for short periods of time.

VIDEOS - AARP Driver Safety on Vehicle Safety Technologies

video iconThe American Association of Retired Persons Driver Safety has teamed up with The Hartford and the MIT AgeLab to create a collection of ten short videos to explain safety technologies that are starting to appear in new vehicles. If you are shopping for a new vehicle the videos may make it easier for you to decide what you need to buy as an option or what you need to do more in depth research on before you commit to purchase.

VIDEO - How to Steer a Car

video iconAlthough this instruction takes place in a right hand drive vehicle, the principles are exactly the same for left hand drive. Three methods or steering are shown: push-pull steering for general driving, hand over hand for slow speed maneuvering and fixed input for small changes in direction.

VIDEO - Booze Busted 2013

video iconOur friends in Australia are taking on impaired driving with this tongue in cheek video. Done with a game show theme, it explains all the things that a drinking driver may "win." They are not afraid to state that if you chose to drink and drive, you are a bloody idiot! You will see that BC is not the only jurisdiction that deals harshly with impaired drivers.

VIDEO - Motorcycle ABS Demonstration

video iconIt will only take 14 seconds to watch this split screen video demonstration of ABS braking by two motorcycles on wet pavement. Chances are good that those 14 seconds will convince you that ABS is a must have on your next motorcycle if you don't have it already.

VIDEO - Night Shift

video iconIf you spent any amount of time looking around the DriveSmartBC web site, you will probably guess that I really like the Australian traffic safety videos. They don't pull any punches and deliver their messages well. This one, on the danger of driving while impaired by fatigue, is no different.
