I'm 18 and have had my license for a while, I saw ALL the Red Asphalt films. I doubt it had any effect on my driving personally, however, I know that
it effected the driving of my classmates. I do think that students should have to watch the films, because whether it effects your driving or not, you
should be fully aware of the possible effects of your own poor choices.
I don't really think the films are done "in bad taste", and I really don't think they're offensive. Like it or not, that could be you. I think
it's more of an informative issue. You were presented with the information that allows you to make your own decision about drinking/texting/doing
drugs/whatever while driving. Now it's up to you to make the choice.
The Red Asphalt films didn't offend me or scare me or sear unwanted images into my mind. I think they're a better tool than someone saying "Don't
do_____because I'm saying it could be bad". This actually SHOWS how it could be bad.
