For several years I've read a lot of comments on this website.
I know everything about the tone of voice of it, but I never picked up my pencil.
Never until now.
I've chosen my first word very carefully.
My first word is: DONE!

Technically your first word was "For". :P

Visual execution is similar BUT...
not even the concept, the insight is different too which comes first.
This (newer) version has a stronger, more thoughtful insight. OTHERS make mistakes on the road - still they shouldn't die.
Calculate with their mistakes for their sake. You can save them. You would like to save them if you knew who they really are behind their mistakes.
It's a moral lesson if you like. And one of the few those make you think.
Saying "no time to think on the road" is really nothing. Everyone knows that still they act like a fool.
But the biggest problem is the tone. It's trying to be funny. Which takes it miles away from reality. Takes away the weight of the topic.
I am positively sure such tone is completely uneffective when it comes to "drive safe" messages.

the concept is totally different! Ok there's a similitude with the frozen part, but, hey, you can't compare these both ideas.

Tragic. Simple. Powerful. One of the best public service ads I've seen in a long time.

Copy is kinda weak at the end though, but overall very good.

Quite a emotionally powerful ad. Never thought to explore that moment in-between action and result. Certainly makes a impact on self-awareness and the consequences of speeding.

Good. But everybody agrees that the gimmick is similar to the Thaï spot though.
