* Lampshaded in ''Film/StrangeBrew''. Doug takes his hands off the wheel and turns to Bob. He asks if he ever notices how [[HollywoodDriving in movies people can drive without looking at the road]] and without the background matching their steering.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MacGyver'': Unfortunately painfully obvious in "Three for the Road" where much of the plot involves Mac being in a car with the two guest stars.

** Also averted in ''Film/TheFrenchConnection'', which was shot entirely on location and mostly in one take. There were even a few unscripted collisions with other vehicles.

Like ''Touch of Evil'' elsewhere on this page, some of the actors (Skipp) did their own driving. Frankenheimer's directorial advice? "I don't want to see brake lights."

* Aussie variety/comedy show ''Series/HeyHeyItsSaturday'' had host Daryl Somers occasionally driving his desk around the studio. Unlike the Conan O'Brian example above, though, he didn't just have the desk mounted onto a normal vehicle, but had the wheels and engine built-in while he stood on a small platform jutting out of the back and using a pair of recessed dials to control it.
