Description from the packaging.

The engine roars as you shift the car into fifth. You look at the speedometer... 95 MPH. The tires scream as they strain to maintain traction against the harsh surface of Highway 1. You dodge the slower vehicles, and take desperate chances on hair-pin curves. You thrive on the high speed danger, the chance of instant destruction at any moment. Suddenly you see the flash of red and yellow lights, the wail of sirens distantly behind you. The Highway Patrol is on to you, and now it must be a race to the finish. Highway Trap... a game of relentless high speed drama.
