Abstract: FEDERAL, STATE, AND PRIVATE POLICE DRIVING EXPERTS PRESENT DRAMATIZED DEMONSTRATIONS OF PROPER DRIVING TECHNIQUES IN DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. THE VARIOUS METHODS OF HIGH SPEED TURNAROUNDS, INCLUDING THE J, Y, AND U TURNS, AND ESCAPES WHICH INVOLVE CONTROLLED SKIDDING ARE SHOW. THE PRECAUTIONS ONE MUST TAKE WHEN SELECTING DRIVING EQUIPMENT (TIRES, ENGINE SIZE, ETC.) ARE DISCUSSED. THE CHAUFFEUR OR DRIVER IS INSTRUCTED TO INSPECT THE VEHICLE FOR BOMBS OR OTHER EXPLOSIVE DEVICES. OTHER DRIVER TRAINING SHOULD INCLUDE A THOROUGH DISCUSSION OF TERRORIST TACTICS AND THE METHODS OF ESCAPE FROM THESE SITUATIONS. BY USING THE TECHNIQUES DISCUSSED IN THIS FILM, DRIVERS WILL BE PREPARED TO TAKE EVASIVE MEASURES IN ORDER TO SAVE THEIR OWN LIFE, AND THE LIFE OF THEIR EMPLOYER. (BAC)
