Brutal but honest.
22 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The grand daddy of shock and gore drivers ed films.Nothing is hidden from view of the intended audience (drivers ed classes),blood,burnt victims,demolished cars,screams of pain.The success of this film led to Mechanized Death,Wheels of Tragedy,Highways of Agony,Options to Live.All these are MUST viewing for any driver young or old.The sad,unforgettable stories of the unfortunates who perished in front of the camera should be taken to the heart....if only those who died had watched a film like this,would they have taken the chances that lead to their early demise??
