Rod Serling of the "Twilight Zone" television series hosts this look at developments in transportation technology. Hollywood science fiction-style music accompanies an overview of roadway research in which "break-away" signage, hologram highway markers, GPS highway navigation prototypes, crash dummies and crash simulators all make an appearance. The film addresses new methods in highway design, planning and construction in urban and rural settings. Produced by the US Highway Research Board.
