The Car Ahead: Skills Of Defensive Driving Episode 2
Don't tailgate! This film from the Skills of Defensive Driving educational series advises drivers on the precautions to be taken when following another vehicle. Narrator Peter Gwynne says 'Most drivers, even some good ones, don't realise how much road is used to stop a car' and in the film they measure this using nifty experiments involving chalk. Gwynne went on to act in TV classics such as Boney, Division 4, Homicide, and Flying Doctors. This episode features beautiful vintage cars - a Cortina and a Torana.
