State of Florida's Graphic Driver/Pedestrian Video - Too Far?

The State of Florida released a graphic Public Service Announcement about pedestrian and driver awareness.

It's a pretty graphic video and I'm interested to know if you think it goes too far. I don't think it does.

From the NY Daily News:
Florida is trying to shock some sense into clueless pedestrians and distracted driver by posting a graphic video that shows real people getting nailed by cars.

The video on the Florida Department of Transportation website starts with a warning: “May be unsuitable for small children.”

Then it proceeds to show a car slamming into a person in a crosswalk and tossing his body lack a sack of cement across an intersection.

It shows a jaywalker getting hit head-on by a car.

It shows another walker getting clipped by a vehicle and hurled into the air before crashing down on the windshield and then the road.

There is footage of police officers and body bags. There are shots of bloody jogging shoes abandoned on the highway.
