An arrogant driver just has to get where he’s going – fast! One way streets are no obstacle. Back home, he falls asleep with his child’s Highway Code. In a simple animated sequence, a surreal and ludic dream of road signs acts as a wake-up call. The man decides to curb his dangerous ways. This Cleveland Cine Club amateur production (with characteristically eerie sound) was shot on location around Middlesbrough in the 1960s.
