How do you get people to take home the "Don't drink and drive" message, they've heard it all before, billboards seem to have little impact (pardon the pun), dramatic TV numbs us to the gore.... Shalmor Avnon Amichay/ Y&R Interactive Tel Aviv thought "perhaps making the billboard out of actual crashed cars will do the trick?"

15 tons worth of metal
