    BLACKOUT - TRAILER.

    A man comes into a cafe quite shaken - he was nearly knocked over by a truck in dark. Another man, a lorry driver, comes in complaining about almost knocking over a man in a dark. Several shots of conversation between the lorry driver and a man whom he nearly knocked over in the dark. They explain the necessity for pedestrians to use proper torches in the dark. They should also keep well out of the way of oncoming traffic.
