Cape Town - In December 2011 we reported on the Western Cape's 'Safely Home' campaign launching a series of videos showing crashes and road accidents in the province.

The aim of the campaign was to highlight the dangers of reckless driving in the Cape. Since its launch, the videos has garnered nearly 400 000 views online.

In September 2012 the Cape Transport and Public Works will be launching its next series of videos as part of its government viral safety campaign.

The video below serves as a "trailer" to showcase videos already released and set to be uploaded online.

From reckless drivers to pedestrians being irresponsible while crossing roads, the videos serve as a reminder to obey the rules of the road and drive safely.

    What pisses me off is the ad campaign that states if you as a driver run over a pedestrian you face charges of murder or culpable homocide.... Jaywalking, crossing a national highway or road is STILL illegal. I dont see any license plates or disks on their butts. Stupidity is no excuse...

    How on earth does this "highlight the dangers of reckless driving"?? It is highly illegal to jaywalk on a highway, and entirely NOT the responsibility of drivers if you do. I can't see any instances of reckless driving, only Darwin award nominees walking across multi-lane highways. Next they'll be suggesting that the speed limit must be reduces because it's somehow the drivers' faults... oh wait, that's exactly what they're doing.
