Shocking Displays Designed to Stop Dangerous Driving

July 21, 2016, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

In a shocking move a dead driver’s car has been displayed outside the British Parliament Buildings. What is left of the car was displayed with a large banner and the #RoadsToJustice tag. The parents of the young man killed in the crash wanted the wreckage displayed as a part of the campaign for tougher road safety sentences.

Joseph Brown-Lartey was killed when an 18 year old driver raced through a red light at 80km/h and struck him in his car. The car was split in two by the impact of the crash, Mr. Brown-Lartey’s family was very upset with the 6 year jail sentence. The young man had spent the evening racing around town in his Audi taking pictures of his speedometer as it reached 142 km/h and texting it to friends. The driver had no licence nor insurance. The young driver who was seriously injured himself was charged with a variety of serious offences.

In Ontario we recently had an equally shocking campaign against distracted driving that pretended to promote the habit and was sponsored by a fake funeral home. The campaign grabbed the headlines for a while. Whether these campaigns have any real lasting effect on behaviour is an unanswered question.
