It looks very much like the Prisoner is about to have a nasty experience! If only he had kept his head, his hands on the steering wheel, and foot to the accelerator. Perhaps that’s what made the Mini-Moke jolt suddenly, taking his foot off the accelerator stalling the vehicle with it still in gear? Had he not done so, the vehicle’s impact with the membranic Guardian would have caused it to rise into the air, and the Prisoner could have driven on at speed into the distance with the Guardian in pursuit! But then had that taken place perhaps one of the Posts, like Post 14 could have shot out one of the Mini-Moke’s tyres using a high-powered rifle, thus causing the vehicle to crash, throwing the driver out onto the sand, leaving the driver to the merciless Guardian!
