Shushanik is a mom and a blogger who likes to share information on different topics she has researched for herself.

Over time, driving becomes a so usual activity, that people often forget how dangerous this activity can be. When driving a car you must be extremely careful. First of all, you should strictly observe the following: fasten seat belts, keep track of all signals and obey traffic rules (check more tips on safe driving).

These creative, inspirational, and sometimes even disturbing road safety ads also try to convey the same message. So please be responsible and drive safely.

      I think they are. At least for me they were. When you see something like that you think twice, they really touch the soul...
