Do you think it would be a good idea for car commercials to insert safe driving tips into their commercials?
I saw a car commercial the other day touting new technology that can detect an accident two cars ahead.
In the commercial, the featured car was behind some big, silver, tanker-like semi. She couldn’t see a damn thing beyond his big, flashy rear end. But a fruit truck in front of the tanker lost his load and ‘lo, the featured car detected it and everybody stopped safely.
If it was MY commercial I’d insert something about NOT FOLLOWING OTHER VEHICLES SO CLOSELY THAT YOU CAN’T SEE ANYTHING BEYOND IT!!
Then there was this local wreck the other day. Bunch of morons simply not paying attention or following too close or whatever.
Couldn’t the commercials take a second for a little PR, like, “Remember the far left lane is for passing only.”
