GTA V inspired road safety infographic focuses on UK statistics

Grand Theft Auto, the incredibly popular and successful video game is definitely not known for promoting road safety. In fact, the game centers on stealing cars and driving them at high speeds around cities often ending in wrecks and fatalities. However, RED Driving School in the UK have capitalized on the recent launch of the smash hit game GTA V to release a road safety inspired infographic using the GTA comic book design.

Grand Theft Auto is hugely successful game franchise but its also the official name of quite a serious crime. That aside, we know its pretty clear that GTA doesn't promote road safety but is rather a move away into a 'virtual world' of recklessness and entertainment with a riveting storyline. However, RED Driving School in the UK have capitalized on the fresh release of GTA V to publish an infographic in the same, comic book graphic design and depict the serious threat facing young drivers on the 'real' roads.
 

While games remain an escape into the virtual, it must be stressed that the real life is quite different and we as young people aren't the heroes of GTA V.


See below, RED Driving School’s GTA-inspired road safety graphic, put together based on a research report around the most common road risks for younger drivers.

The report pulled in data from the UK and the US relating to some of the more common accidents and fatalities experienced by Younger drivers, as well as surrounding information, on topics such as insurance and new driving tech. Here at RED we also ran a couple of surveys related to car insurance and attitudes to drink driving for younger drivers.

The full list of findings is available upon request to interested parties, and a RED spokesperson can also be made available for comment on any data which is mentioned within the graphic.
