Auto safety ads: New form of Public Safety Announcement tactic

Auto safety ads are currently used as new form of Public Safety Announcement (PSA). These commercials are used not only to promote cars manufactured by different car makers but also as a way of raising awareness for vehicle owners and drivers. Most of these ads are broadcasted on televisions and posted on the internet to remind motorists of the possible results of even the slightest negligence when driving.

These efforts were probably brought about by the increasing cases of road accidents. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) majority of these accidents involve teen drivers ages 16-19. This also includes those that were newly licensed. Given these findings, teenagers are viewed as high risk motorist with the greater possibility of being involved in an accident. This age bracket are also prone to bad driving habits such as drunk driving, driving while texting, and talking while driving.

In order to educate teenage and grown-up drivers, auto safety ads are used to enhance awareness of the risks involved in driving. Most auto safety ads are centered on showing the negative results of bad driving habits while some of these ads are encouraging drivers to use the safety devices of the vehicle.
