Should We Regulate Ads that Promote Dangerous Driving?



This Ford ad was banned in the U.K. last year. Image: Ford/Youtube

How many times have you seen a car ad that shows nay, glorifies dangerous driving? Someone revving down a tiny road along a jagged cliff? Or speeding through a city pedestrians, cars, other impediments somehow miraculously absent?

Well, it may end up like ads for tobacco products:)
Driving like crazy drives economy up: doctors, lawyers, mortuary scientists, traffic engineering , self defence (against road rage) industries...
Most European cities used to have speed limits of 60km/h therefore it was no need to make high power cars for common people

My pet peeve is movies and TV shows that show the driver turning to look at the passenger a lot when speaking. Somehow they never seem to crash.
