Description

Road safety film promoting the wearing of seat belts in car.

This film attempts to convince the viewer of the good sense in wearing a seat belt whilst driving a car by using a comic device. A woman driving a car without the protection of a seat belt is pulled over by a police officer and invited to take part in a road safety experiment. She agrees but is caught unawares when she finds herself hoisted into the air by a crane. The commentator then informs her that having a crash at 30 miles an hour is equivalent to a fall from a height of 15 feet in the air. The crane then proceeds to hoist her higher and higher indicating the equivalences of crashing at a number of speeds up to the national speed limit of 70 miles per hour.

Road safety basics haven't changed at all. I love the vintage fashions and the way he gets the point across. The laws of physics dont change either.
