Default 1946 Cab 12 crash

This road safety movie is (as it says at the beginning) pulling no punches and has some graphic pictures of people with injuries.
There is however something for us in it, apart from the road safety message.
If you scroll to about 5:07 there is a shot of a cab 12 Ford which has gone into what looks like a dry dock, tearing off the front axle and probably not doing the driver a lot of good either.
Here's the link:

Over 60 years later the mesage is still the same and it is still being ignored.
That footage is tame compared to the film the police showed us at school the year most of our class went for our licences.
