Doohan fronts new Aussie road-safety video

Check this clever bike safety campaign from Down Under

ONE OF the cleverest road safety campaigns we've seen in years has been released in Australia and it's so good we're wondering why the same sort of thing hasn't been done over here.

Fronted by five-time 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan, the campaign shows some of the big crashes from MotoGP but has road furniture put into the footage (a couple of phoneboxes, a park bench and a seat and a parked bus) with the action stopping before the MotoGP heroes plough into the roadside objects.

Called: No Place To Race, the campaign ad is certainly thought-provoking stuff.
