This night driver perspective was filmed using a 16mm Arriflex motion-picture camera.
To safely simulate the 96 MPH speed, the camera and all vehicles were operated at 1/3 speed.
Of course, the camera vehicle decelerated to a safe stop before hitting the crossing vehicle.
To simulate a constant speed all the way to impact, video frames were carefully edited to transform
the braking deceleration into a constant speed.
A radar speed indicator provided the control curve for video editing.
