The 12-minute video of gruesome and violent images is further proof of the importance of road safety education, sound road infrastructure, proper signage, strict law enforcement and comprehensive road safety policies and laws. Watch the video here.

According to Ben Welle, assistant project manager of Health and Road Safety at EMBARQ (the producer of this blog,) the video is an important reminder of not only education but also of road design. "Looking at the video, it isn't a surprise that over 1.2 million people die every year in traffic crashes," Welle says. "There's a lot of chaos there, and it really shouts out the need to address safety not only through education and better enforcement, but in designing these roads to prevent crashes from ever occurring."
