One ad for a Vauxhall Astra 1.7D Turbo shows the car as it would normally look in a typical ad, but with a man hanging out of the windscreen, apparently dead.
The copy reads: "ABS, power steering and driver's airbag. But nothing to stop passenger hurtling through windscreen after driver had spent a couple of hours in pub. Don't drink and drive. AutoTrader."
Another ad shows a boy lying on the ground in front of a car after a "lady owner who, after a few sherries, knocked down and killed a boy playing outside his home".
In another creative, an ad features a shot of a Ford Fiesta up against a lamppost with the words: "60,000 miles, central locking, new alloys, new radio/CD player, all a complete write-off after the young driver had a few cocktails, drove into a lamppost and killed herself outright".
Creatives on the campaign include Simon Horton (AD), Hanna Ford (CW), and Adam Hinton (Photographer).
