The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office have produced a new  road safety video. It is made in the classic comedy style of the 1950s and 60s Public Information broadcasts.

Of course there is a serious message behind the video. Whether you’re taking your own vehicle or hiring in-country there’s plenty to research before leaving the UK. This video highlights the key issues to research and provides an insight into what can go wrong if you are unprepared.
