UK government pranks people in bars to prevent drunk driving
Drunk driving is a serious problem across the globe. What’s the UK Department of Public Transportation’s solution? Scare the crap out of people in bars for some reason.
The exploding mirror is designed to simulate the the effect of a drunk driving collision in the hopes of scaring drunks off from grabbing the keys after too many pints. Or, more accurately, make some random dudes shit their pants because they have no clue what the correlation is between their drinking and what just happened in the bathroom. Great lesson, UK.
