There’s blood on the windshield in this shocking collection of traffic safety films, some as gruesome as anything in a horror movie! In the wake of World War II, there were more cars on the streets and newly-constructed highways of the U.S.A. than ever before. The Highway Safety Foundation worried that Americans were not properly obeying the rules of the road. Enlisting the movie industry (never known for its subtlety) to shock people into driving properly, the resulting films went overboard in their depiction of horrendous car crashes and mangled victims. If anything, they created an audience of moviegoers eager to see real-life death and destruction, culminating in such ‘pseudo-documentaries’ as Faces of Death (1978) and its imitators. You’ll think twice about getting into a car after watching these vintage films!
