ON PREVIEW CASSETTE # 991500A CU of accident report being written by a Skokie policeman, CU's of seatbelts being fastened, CU of depressed accelerators, and CU's of turn signals are just a few of the obvious shots in this defensive driving film. There are also a few staged accidents (the impact is implied but presented from both subjective and objective angles), accident recreations via Matchbox cars, hot-rodding '65 Mustangs cutting people off, and literally tons of hood-mounted camera shots driving aimlessly and slowly through suburban and town traffic on nice sunny days. The voiceover narration is fairly typical: male, stern, and bluntly informative.
