PSA Tells Our Neighbors to the North; Slow Down, Eh?

This public service announcement from the Alberta Office of Traffic Safety does an effective job of juxtaposing ever darker imagery against a voice-over that facetiously praises celerity. While the cautionary tale plays out in the expected fashion, its ending arrives in an abrupt, but memorable manner.
While Hooniverse is all about fast driving, 100-octane contact highs, and bat-sh*t insane cars, we know that there’s a time and a place for everything, and if you’re going to be driving your slow car fast or are betting your life on the driving skills of others, it’s important to remember that that these kind of things don’t just happen to Canadians.

    Well Dearthair, Number-six, BigHarv and my self all live in the same province here (Alberta, although Dearthair is way north of us) and I'm pretty sure that we're all still alive due to reasons beyond our control. I can tell you right now, you don't drive an old Porsche through Calgary and survive on skill alone.
