A secretly-filmed campaign highlighting the dangers of drink driving has been released, urging the public to act to help prevent it this Christmas.

Confused.com commissioned a secret camera to film an actor playing a drunk man trying to get into his car and failing while stumbling around.

He then asked over 50 members of the public to help him get into the car, with surprising results.

  • More than two thirds of people helped the ?drunk? man into his car
  • Only eight refused to help him
  • One person called the police and retained the actor?s keys

That's pretty astonishing :/.

But then again if someone asked me to unlock the car I'd think they're trying to get something maybe their phone to call a taxi and I'd watch them, if they asked me to unlock it so they could drive then I'd refuse, kinda depends on what they ask really.

"yeah ok... well, let me phone the police"

Props to that guy. I'd have done the same.

I'm not surprised. People don't like to get involved anyway. They probably figure the guy might raise a fuss if they confront him.

personally, I would have asked his intention, if it was to drive home, I would have taken his keys as if pretending to unlock his car, then simply walked to the nearest police station and tell them what the drunk told me.

Wouldn't happen in the US. We know how to hold our liquor.

Err what? :/

Anyway I can't get these people who just let him inside the car. Think for a freaking second, okay, you'll let him in a car but what happens if your kid comes home from school on the next street and meets this guy? What the hell is the matter with some people. :angry:
