Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Banditen der Autobahn (Bandits of Highway) may remind the contemporary viewer of the American TV series Real Stories of the Highway Patrol. The film is based on a true story, concerning a series of robberies on the highways of Germany. At the time of the actual events, there was a controversy over whether or not highway patrolmen should be given permission to use firearms against perpetrators. The script stacks the deck in favor of the Law by casting some fairly scurrilous types as the villains. Banditen der Autobahn was distributed throughout the US by Columbia Pictures.
