CAPE TOWN - In December 2011, the Western Cape's Safely Home campaign launched 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 by showing CCTV footage of graphic accidents

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

According to Western Cape transport minister Robin Carlisle, the videos are the latest instalment of an on-going campaign to educate the public on the violence behind crashes caused by irresponsible and reckless road use.

We now have the latest videos and they're quite an eye-opener for complacent drivers in the province and are not for sensitive viewers or those under the age of 18.

In this three part video you can see three instances of reckless behaviour on our roads.

In the first part you can see a truck speeding along the N1 heading into Cape Town and overturning. Both the second and third parts of the video highlight the dangers of speeding as two vehicle's are horrifically veering off the road, across the median and into oncoming traffic.

The crash at 0:38 is particularly terrifying as the driver crashes into oncoming vehicles.

As more videos are released we'll published them on Wheels24. Please email us should you indentify the incidents or location they took place in.

    Drive around CT for a day and you will see how the Cap flat locals drive and you'll be scared stiff to drive again. You will also see that you can drive around the city for days on end without ever seeing a traffic official or car. The high accident rate is a result of dumb low class people who somehow wangled a drivers license only to be let loose on the roads with no police around!!
