Next block of code :

onClipEvent (enterFrame) { 
if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {
this._x += moveSpeed;

This means that when you enter the frame, if the right key is holded down, it will add movespeed (3) to X, making it move to the right, because X is a imaginary vertical line on the left so adding to X will make something move to the right.
Next block of code :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.UP)) { 
this._y -= moveSpeed;

This means that else if the up key is holded it will substracte movespeed (3) to Y which is another imaginary line, this time on the the top, so you go up.
next block :-) :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.DOWN)) { 
this._y += moveSpeed;

If you are intelligent, you should undestand this means that you add to Y making the man go down.
Final block of code :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)) { 
this._x -= moveSpeed;

This means you substracte to X making the man go left... Next page is about Variables

» Description:

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.
