Mechanized Death – Legendary Driving Safety Film is a driving safety film, which aims to “scare” drivers into learning the importance of defensive driving, showing the real dangers of reckless driving on the open road. The film features arresting scenes of mutilated cars, dead or injured people and an emotionless voice to convey the lack of compassion.
Mechanized Death – Legendary Driving Safety was created in partnership with the Ohio State Highway Patrol and was meant to be shown to millions of would-be drivers. The film has been shown across the country for over 40 years.
One of the highlight of the film is Signal 30, which featured actual auto accidents scenes and a closeup view of the mangled bodies of car accident victims. Other notable parts of the film include Highways of Agony, Wheels of Tragedy and Carrier or Killer.
