Storyline

In this MGM short film, part of the Theater of Life Series, an Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle Sergeant reflects on the growing traffic levels on the nation's roads.

I'll drive safer!
13 December 2002 | by bubbarianSee all my reviews

Every driver should see this! The world would be a safer place. The images of death and destruction are a blunt reality check. I wish they'd still shown this type of thing when I was in Driver's Ed. Somebody should remake this eye-opening short.
