Learn How To Drive In Eight Short Videos

Illustration for article titled Learn How To Drive In Eight Short Videos

Time-rending wormholes are a constant danger we all face. At any moment, we could all be sucked into a rift in the space-time continuum, and emerge anywhere. Even behind the wheel of a Holden whizzing down a crowded Australian highway in the 1970s. That's why you need to watch these videos to be prepared.


These eight videos seem to be from a seven-part series (I know, I know) called Skills Of Defensive Driving, produced by the Australian Department of Transportation, and, if nothing else, it's a great way to see lots of vintage Australian iron booming around the roads, making all kinds of exciting traffic errors. Then people in shockingly loud shirts and mutton chops explain how "the suspension let me down!"

The overall tone of the narration is interesting, too. The disembodied narrator wonders about who is "morally" at fault in accidents, and reflects on how you can't blame stationary objects for a crash, as "they're just there."


Interesting stuff. Enjoy.
