Warning: The video above does not contain any graphic images, but does show the moment the motorcyclist collides with a car and may be disturbing to some viewers.

NORFOLK, England (PIX11) — A grieving mother is hoping that footage from her son’s final motorcycle ride will convince drivers and riders alike to be safer on the road.

The video, taken in 2013 by a camera outfitted to 38-year-old David’s motorcycle, was released Thursday by police in Norfolk, England.

“This isn’t an easy thing to do but I just hope that somebody benefits from it,” the man’s mother said.

David was traveling at a high rate of speed down A47 when a car turned into his path. He didn’t have any time to move out of the way and collided head on with the sedan.
