How many times have we seen this? At some point during a high speed chase or other action sequence, someone realises that their vehicle, spaceship or hovercraft is about to crash, throws up their hands, and screams. We then cut to an external view as they plough into the obstruction and inevitably explode.
The thing is, I often notice that the time period between exploding and throwing up of hands is sufficient that the character really should have had no problem steering around the object in question - if only they hadn't taken their hands off the wheel. In short, directors: to improve the quality of your movie, please minimise the amount of time between screaming and exploding.
That is all.
