TAC , the organization in the Victoria province in Australia that looks after road safety has produced several very nice safety PSAA public service announcement (PSA) or public service ad is a type of advertisement featured on television, radio, print or other media. Whereas the objective of a standard advertisement is to market a product, a PSA is intended to benefit the public interest, by raising awareness of an issue, affecting public attitudes, and potentially stimulating action. for motorcycle riders (see related articles below). Sometimes they are hard hitting, and sometimes, like this one, the advertisement is well thought out and brings home a message without violence.
The ad below shows what could happen, even if you the biker is doing everything as you should. It is positive, and reinforces the "Perfect Ride".
Bravo TAC Victoria .

The boys & girls at the Australian Traffic Accident Commission, TAC, have been making some nicely done motorcycle safety and awareness videos. Here's their latest, and IMHO, best safety advertisement.
The graphics are very well done, as is the message. You'll see a motorcycle accident in slow-motion and in reverse. The tag line is "Slow speed will not kill you".

Quite a good safety commercial from TAC Australia for motorcycle riders. It's thought provoking due to the second part of the advertisement.
The ad shows you that you're not always safe when riding your motorcycle, and in a nice stunt accident, you can see that a crash can happen without you doing anything wrong. But what's more important are the after effects....
The ad was shown in 1997 in Australia.

The Australian Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) of Victoria state is very active in the prevention of accidents and in general road safety. And like very year anywhere in the world, during the festive season, people drink and party. Drink a lot. And that leads to accidents.
TAC have put out a TV commercial addressing the drinking & diving during the silly season, and I have to say, it's very good. They've done it seriously, but with a good sense of humor by using wordplay...........
