Trinity Church and empty streets of Manhattan. Instrumental audio begins, accompanying scenes of busy roadways and traffic jams in the United States. Many 1930s automobiles seen from Ford, Chevrolet, Packard, Chrysler, and others. Passenger cars as well as delivery and freight trucks. Scenes of cars driving steadily on the highways and roads in the United States. Number of cars drive steadily on a six lane road. Scenes of cars stuck in long lines of traffic. Exasperated drivers. Drivers get out of their cars in the jam to talk to each other. A mechanic replaces flattened tire of a car on the road side. Many outdoor advertising signs featuring local businesses and services. A boy helps a girl peer over a high stone wall where she sees a "no trespassing" sign. The kids join their parents in a picnic on the roadside. A police officer on a motorcycle shakes his head in disbelief at the traffic. Signs warn drivers about traffic safety. A wooden mannequin of a policeman with arms waving to slow down traffic. A man works on the engine of a car. A crashed car and a crane. View from a valley as a car soars over the edge of the road embankment above and crashes down a mountainside, with pieces flying everywhere.
