    Link: Shock Commercial Goes Too Far? NSFW - A new TV ad, showing a horrific death, is the latest attempt to stop high drivers getting behind the wheel. Graphic!

    it made me go "what the hell?" because they were doing what they were supposed to. sure, you`re not supposed to drive when you`re high in the first place, but they were pulling over to switch sides.. =\

    so basicly as long as you don`t get out of your car doing drugs and driving just makes you drive a bit fast then a bit slow

    That`s a joke.... A) I`ve never been in a vehicle with someone who drives like that while they`re high because, they tend to be more cautious, and they also tend to give themselves a bit of time to be clearer headed. and B) the good decision to pull over killed him... not the driving STUPIDO

    I think people can make that mistake at any time. Him being high certainly didn`t help, but I can imagine anyone being that careless at any time.

    Hehe, now that poor girl will only think: "IF ONLY I HAD LET HIM DRIVE!!"

    Think on it; if he had driven into a tree or another car or something (at those speeds), he might be banged up or the car might have been ruined, but he probably wouldn`t be dead.

    as usual, the tactics used by liars are way over the top.anybody wanna see where this nonsense started, look to "reefer madness". and before you ask, no, it`s not a spoof, they really put it out there back in the 50`s.. it`s all ridiculous. if i had a dollar for every person driving stoned right now (that isn`t going to wreck, no less) i`d never have to work another day in my life.

    oh, and to anyone that thinks different, i`d gladly let you buy me a bag, get me stoned, and i will gladly show you i could still pass a standard driving test, and drive any vehicle of your chosing to do so. most of the people that i know that smoke, those that know they can`t drive proper high, DONT DRIVE HIGH!

    Seriously AlfishKK, "People can make that mistake at any time"? Yeah, I can`t tell you how many times I`ve just gotten out of my car on the shoulder without looking, or walked right into traffic. COntrary to many of the thought patterns going on here, life is not one big attempt to disprove the Darwin Awards. Go ahead and try though, I loves me some stupid deaths, just don`t take anyone with you okay? (Unless of course they think walking into traffic is a common mistake as well)

    Odd. To encourage stoners not to get behind the wheel? He wasn`t behind the wheel. Maybe this encourages stoners to STAY in the driver`s seat so they won`t get hit by a reckless driver. O_o

    I won`t go into how much I see wrong with screwzloose`s comments, as it won`t do any good. I will say that I agree with lksrsly. This guy made the right choice, and stopped driving. THEN he gets punished. If you`re going to be graphic to make a point, at least make the point. Have the dude get in an accident because he shouldn`t be driving. Don`t have him killed because he made the mistake of not looking before getting out of the car. That mistake has NOTHING to do with drugs.

    StudentOfMan, I`ve had to brake countless times for idiot pedestrians wandering into the road without looking.

    This ad seems more to be against drug-taking pedestrians than drivers, and most pedestrians seem stupid enough already sober. This one`s not targeted very well.

    Welp, that`s the first time I`ve actually seen something like that, and I honestly can say, it doesn`t surprise me. But really, drugs aren`t the only thing. This ad should be for people who carry long conversations on the phone, read a book, or put on makeup while driving.

    She yells what have you done to the driver of the other car....Wasnt it her stupid stoned husbands fault in the first place. In reality that guy would be living with the guilt of killing that man all his life just cause that stupid bloke didnt look properly cause he insisted on driving when stoned....which in my opinion is one of the stupidest things you can do.So you cant always blame the other drivers...also I was dissapointed by the lack of gore in this...I WANTED ENTRAILS!

    What the hell?? Alright, it`s not like I`m pro driving under any type of influence or anything...but why is this stoner`s fault for dying? The second he gets out of the car he gets smoked? (pardon the pun ;)) There should be enough time for you spot a door opening in front of you and for you to slow down if someone`s getting out of the car. Betcha other guy was on his cellphone.

    im in my right mind but dont look backward first. does that make me stoned? if so, where cn i get more of this wonder drug that gets ya stoned w/o taking it?

    its the driver of the other cars fault, coz the stoner stopped, put on hazards, and then looked into the road as he was getting out. the driver that hit him had plenty of time to look and slow down/drive around the car.

    this made me laugh a lot!
    first of all it`s not super graphic, yah, there is the blurr of action implying that the man was struck by a car but there are some down-right AWFUL european commercials that warn on drunk driving that involve slow motion death and are ACTUALLY graphic, meaning that they display drawn out violence not just the hint of accident.

    and i just thought it was funny that he didn`t crash at all, the commercial more shows the danger of being on foot after one hit from a joint. grrrrrrreat!

    This is tame by Australian standards; We have had the many infamous "Bloody Idiot" ads in the past that show people flipping over cars etc.
    The message in this ad is clear - when high, you become a bit absent minded, which is not a good thing when there are big blocks of steel whizzing around you.

    I Lol`d. At Misery106, he wasn`t driving fine, he was going off the road, speeding up and slowing down erratically ("Make up you mind, slow or fast" may have been a reference to which lane he wanted to be in. I am not entirely sure), and he couldn`t tell it was clear near the beginning of their drive.

    Well if his steering wheel was on the left side like in the good ole U S of A, he would still be alive today. I think the real point of the message is for the rest of the world to get with it because putting the steering wheel on the right side of the car is just plain silly.

    "apparently from what a friend told me
    when he`s high from weed, he drives better cause he is more focused on the road and his surroundings and crap like that.
    Your friend is retarded."

    It`s been proven.

    while i agree that most people i know probably usually drive fine after a couple of tokes, i think the ad is still a good idea. cause i mean, it DOES slow reaction time. you cant deny that, and some people are idoits, who drive when they`re completely screwed out of their minds.

    i liked the one with the talking matchbook. cause it messed you up real good if you were high

    that was stupid. anyone driving down the road would see someone get out of their car, they would move.
    unless the oral of this story is about the guy driving the car who hit the guy. only someone drunk/on the phone/texting/high/or retarded wouldnt see someone get out of their car and either swerve or slow down

    Right.... a few things. Firstly it seems to suggest the driver that hit him is the one we should be checking to see is drunk/high as he didn`t even attempt to swerve even though he would have had enough reaction time to do so. And Secondly, 1 toke from a joint would not be enough to impair you that much that you wouldn`t see a car hurtling down the road towards you when you get out the car.
    Stupid commercial.

    They would be better served showing someone shooting up crack or dropping pills instead of simply having 1 toke from a joint.
    But then again this would have been even better served as a don`t drink and drive advert and focusing on the guy who crashed (he is Australian so chances are he was drunk :-P )

    Pansy America. We`re so caught up in `let`s not scare the children` that we let them do stupid sh*t instead, and god forbid we spank them to discipline them and *closes pandora`s box* Seriously, this `we`re protecting our kids` thing is just too much. Scare them! I don`t care if they have a couple nightmares. At least they`ll be alive to have them.

    ..though it is overboard with pot. I`d rather for alcohol or something a lot more dangerous.

    Sorry but that was stupid and says nothing about driving high. He was goofing up a little but unless the other driver was high, it was pointless.

    He didn`t look when he got out of the car, but he was out and walking when the other car hit him. There were no brakes squealing, but he had been out long enough for the guy to see him and try to swerve or honk or something.

    Yeah, I get the idea but they screwed it up.
