Some Bonus

If you take a look around the source files you'll find some nice AS3 bonus material.
Besides the and Class files you've already seen, there is also

// game successfully finished
dispatchEvent(new Event(GAME_SUCCESS));

// time run out
dispatchEvent(new Event(GAME_FAILURE));

// object released
dispatchEvent(new Event(STOP_DRAGGING));

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
