In Clarksburg, California a vindictive sheriff torments travelers who speed through his jurisdiction.  Sheriff Roy Childress (Vic Morrow) lost his daughter and wife to a speeder years earlier, and now he's on a vendetta to punish anyone who refuses to obey the speed limit. 

 

Tickets and court summonses are Childress' tamest forms of punishment.  The sheriff's preferred method is to run speeding motorists off the road, and onto the side of a mountain embankment.  So far he's gotten away with it, but a victim's brother seeks answers -- and revenge.
