ANYONE AT ALL - SAFETY IN THE COMMUNITY (1954, B&W, 21:56)
An strange Encyclopedia Britannica film where Larry gets himself killed in a car accident on the way to a party that was supposed to be a surprise in his honor. His buddy Phil gets the whole town fired up on safety who tell their own morbid stories of how their friends met their end at the wheel of an automobile. Larry comes back from the grave of course and puts his own two cents in from the pennies on his eyes. Well intentioned message, but well over the top.
CROSSROADS CRASH (1973, COLOR, 10:11)
A greatly weird film using comedic bank robber charicatures to illustrate how to properly drive through intersections and crossroads/ Utilizing vintage crash test films to drive the film's lessons home.
DRIVEN TO KILL (1940s, B&W, 9:04)

Lowell Thomas is back again in this American Transit Association film with this cautionary tale of a GI Joe who comes home from over there in one piece only to end up the mortal victim of a bad automobile driver over here.

LAST DATE (1949, 19:00)
Dick York of the TV show "Bewitched" fame could have used a little magic to get him out of this mortal situation - "Teenicide - the fine art of killing yourself...with a car!" Samantha's immortal powers might have come in handy if Dick took her instead of Joan for a ride and hurtled his hot rod relentlessly into a game of chicken with death - it would have prevented her from being permanently disfigured like Joan!
LAST PROM (1980, COLOR, 23:12)
Drinking, driving, teenagers and prom night - it's all bad, as this competantly produced celebrated film goes some hokey distance to propagandize us into believing - and it has nothing to do with the tunnel of love either - you'll see!
LIVE AND LET LIVE (1947, 10:15)
This classic driver ed film uses beautiful miniature model cars in a lovely miniature model town to illustrate the dangers of a variety of real life driving situations and the ways in which such dangerous can be dealt with. Sponsored & produced by Aetna Casualty & Surety Company.

NONE FOR THE ROAD (1957, 14:03)
The Yale Center of Alcohol Studies pitched in on this effort to illustrate, somewhere between drunk rat experiments and drunk teenage dances, what college men can expect if they drink & drive - they can kill & maybe even be killed as a result.
ROAD RUNNERS (1952, 11:46)
If only James Dean & his "Rebel Without a Cause" hoodlum friends had seen this, maybe, just maybe, they wouldn't have been playing chicken driving off cliffs & all. This community concious film seeks to educate communities on the ways in which hotrodders can go from outlaws to lawlubbers through sponsoring racing clubs and associate associations. Then again, this film had no effect on the Modesto kids in the "American Grafitti" drag racing sequence, either. As for Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote...don't even go there.

SIGNAL 30 (1959, 27:07)
THE MOTHER OF ALL CAR ACCIDENT FILMS. THIS is the one you've heard about - the legendary old school scare-the-living-daylights-out-of-them driver safety movie, complete with all the gruesome gore the legend does very little if anything to exaggerate. Sponsored by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, produced by Highway Safety Films, and inflicted by schools & community organizations alike nationwide for decades afterwards upon generations of young Americans.
STOP DRIVING US CRAZY! (1959, 9:51)
It's a sin to drive poorly, and the General Board of Temperance of The Methodist Church wanted us to know that so badly that they sponsored this crazy cartoon to get the good news out. That the news comes from Mars in the person of a spy named Rusty is simply incidental.
SURE, MAC, SURE... (1970S, COLOR, 0:59)
A Public Service Announcement short demonstrating that eating food doesn't make a drunk person sober up and fit to drive.
THE BOTTLE AND THE THROTTLE (EARLY 1960S, B&W, 10:18)

WHAT'S THE BIG HURRY (1970s, COLOR, 10:15)
An automobile graveyard with spooky sound effects sets the tone of very surrealistic film depicting what the ultimate results of bad driving are.
WHEN YOU ARE A PEDESTRIAN (1948, 10:30)
A mix of live action footage and table-top miniature model recreations, focusing on the need for drivers to look out for the rights and needs of pedestrians, complete with gruesome accident shots & scary narration to go with it. Exactly the kind of film you'd expect from a narrator who is supposed to be dead!
WHY NOT LIVE? (1930s, B&W, 10:10)
An American Red Cross film showing the importance of preventing all kinds of accidents in general and automobile accidents in particular utilizing drmatizations of such accidents while demonstrating the remedial action that can be taken when they occur.
WRECKLESS (1935, B&W, 17:19)
A Jam Handy production that promotes a double message: it's okay to have and enjoy a speedy car, so long as you drive responsibly (and have a good lawyer, too!).
YOUR PERMIT TO DRIVE (1951, 10:17)
The next time your driver's license starts to talk to you, don't worry - it's a phenomenon that's been going on since GMC got one of these incorrigible licenses to narrate this film. By the way, the permit referred to is in fact a driver's license, not a driver's permit, which may be why it feels so compelled to talk. It speaks to the soul of Americans to ensure that they realize that driving is one this country's great freedoms, but that disobediance of the rules of the road is so very bad, it's...un-American!
