Theres also a gui frontend built into mplayer called mplayergui I
think, you have to enable it during the configure process I just
forget the exact option you pass to the configure script, though I
think its something like --with-gui. Its written in gtk iirc, though
don't know if its at all accessible.

yield -t for yield to trucks
yield -f for yield to people walking (yield foot)
yield -d t* for yield on days starting with t
...you'd have a lot of dead people at intersections, and traffic jams you
