It's the NASCAR of billboards and product-placement of driving. Targeting the mass-rubbernecking market.
Cars and trucks are fully covered in large company logos.
They are driven out heavily trafficked highways where they collide, have blow-outs, or simply park on the side with their blinkers
turned on. Every death-curious passerby becomes a captive audience in a state of psychological vulnerability for the full, ridiculous 25 minutes it takes to find out that nothing severe has happened ---- and drive on.

- radio stations
Look out for the sponsored tow-truck and ambulance!!
Cities consider ads on police cars

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||The darker side of ImBack's Crash-site Billboards (under Car: Rubbernecking).
||Surprisingly torn by this one--are there laws against staged accidents?
||Didn't Nike block traffic at a downtown intersection for an Agassi game? And I believe RedBull was a regular sponsor of a infamous French climber who scaled the Sears Tower in Chicago as well as the arch in St.Louis. He was arrested for both --- they'd just wait for him at the top.
||Ads on emergency vehicles is in the oven: see link.
||Some UK motorway patrol cars have sponsorship details on them for the provider of the car and the warning equipment.
