This "Theater of Life" series short looks at traffic problems in Los Angeles, California, as described and experienced by Sgt. Charles Reineke, a traffic enforcement officer with the Los Angeles Police Department.
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. People drive further and faster than they ever have. People are impatient and don't give way to pedestrians, leading to frazzled nerves all-round. Accidents occur regularly leading not only to costly damaged cars but also to loss of lives.Written by

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.
