Car interior scenes in TV or film sometimes show the occupants chatting. Many times, one can easily tell that the scene was shot in a studio with the exterior scene on a screen in back of the occupants OR it was dubbed into the scene after the fact. In Ferris Bueller, for example, there is one scene where the car changes lanes but Broderick doesn't touch the steering wheel. In that case, I assume the car was on a flatbed trailer and the shot was filmed from the bed of a pickup that was towing. Sometimes I see the driver look at the passenger for an extended length of time (10 seconds?). I hope the person in the drivers seat was not really driving.
With the exception of short-slow scenes (e.g. in a driveway before entering the street), do they every allow the person who is allegedly driving the car to be the one actually driving the car. I'm assuming acting could be a distraction that creates a dangerous situation.
