I must not be a 'real ' man, since I've now got some strange watery stuff dripping from my eyes now.
This commercial really makes you feel for those that have lost loved ones to accidents.

Real men admit they have feelings. Men who try to hide them are still children waiting to grow up.

... the other thing that belongs in Drivers Ed is a "how to drive a manual car" video.

At my drivers ed they put the biggest emphasis on drunk driving, distacted driving, and seatbelts, except I watched a video that was a tad more graphic. Its those where they have the crash in slow motion, and the aftermath of the collision, and such. Pretty powerful. This is just, as the title says, a more beautiful video.

Nice video.

A friend's teenager just attended driver-ed and said it included over an hour of videos showing dead bodies from drunk driving. Very graphical stuff, easily R rated.

They also said driver-ed included zero emergency response or evasive driving. I have heard great things about the BMW Street Survival class put on my local BMW clubs.

Great video, and I agree there needs to be an evasive driving section of drivers ed but there isn't one.


Those girls would have to have a grip from Hell to be able to do that!

I openly advocate a young start in autocross and moderate youth racing leagues/classes. If you start when it's fun, you'll know what to do when it's necessary.
