One of France's states ("departements"), Val d'Oise, has gotten itself in its head that by shocking people they will take things more seriously.

What the local authorities have done, is take photos made by their emergency crews and made a photo book out of them. All the photos are of serious motorcycle accidents, and the books are distributed to students who are to take their motorcycle license exams.

The authorities hope that when the pupils see the terrible accidents they will take care while riding their motorcycles. What these so-called experts fail to see, is that the majority of fatal motorcycle accidents were caused by cars, not motorcycles. Maybe they should give the booklet to student car drivers?

Do you think this will work? Personally, I don't. Seeing photos of accidents is not going to slow any youngster down who rides a motorcycle. Seeing a real accident of a friend might.
