Large funded film studios usually shut down the road by contacting the city. Even the car commercials with traffic are fully staged or on a Hollywood set. Depending on the budget, even some car shows (for example Battle of the Supercars) will shut down a twisty mountain road to have the hosts drive on it "safely."

It is only the (crazy) independent film makers whom are hanging out a window in a 5D Mark II in traffic, not that I have ever done that before!
