MOTORING OFFENCES SEEN ON THE SILVER SCREEN

Smokey and the BanditA few days ago, I spoke to my cousin George who told me about a rather arduous encounter he had with his previous partner. 'Dave', he said to me, 'I had a great time running into her again!'. 'But why?', I exclaimed, 'Why did you enjoy seeing that horrible woman? After all, she did just cheat on you with one of your friends and stole quite a bit of your money!'. 'Yes', George replied, 'Yes, she did, which is why I had a great time running into her with my car'. 





Ha! I'm only kidding, folks! As no harm was done to anyone, either living or dead, aside from my cousin's car which doesn't always work. In any event, the main reason why I told you this somewhat silly story, spit-spit-spit, is because it kind of demonstrates how most of us often overlook many of the impractical and illegal traffic offences featured on film!

Car Chase
Well, let's face it, there are more movies that prefer to depict fast-paced, action-packed, driving sequences, than there are bold, poetic melodramas that attempt to teach us how to drive in a safe and orderly fashion. In fact, so many movies prefer to put on a show, mainly by vividly illustrating Person A chasing Person B in order to achieve Objective C, blah-blah-blah, etc-etc-etc, that my mates over at carleasespecialoffers.co.uk have decided to create the following two infographics that emphasize this particular point.

Now the first infographic presents us with a list of the highest-grossing modern movies that feature the most popular car chases seen on the silver screen (emphasis on the word, modern), whereas the second one does a very similar thing, but for the highest-grossing classic movies instead. In addition to this, each infographic also highlights:
  1. The number of motoring offences shown in each film (according to The Highway Code).
  2. How often a motoring offence would occur throughout the duration of each film (calculated per minute).
  3. How many years the perpetrator(s) would collectively spend in jail for committing these offences (estimated in years).
  4. How many points him/her/they would receive on their license(s) -- in total -- for these said-same offences (say no more).
So go ahead, check them out, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

In closing, I would just like to thank carleasespecialoffers.co.uk for allowing me to share their research in this article, before encouraging you to check out their official website
