It looks like stock footage presumably to be partially used in a Hollywood film or TV series, typical of the 1950s.
I can imagine a DUI Broderick Crawford playing the part of Dan Mathews recklessly speeding on those streets in his chrome faced glitsy 1958 Buick Special with a Highway Patrol insignia on the doors.
BTW, there is one similar film clip of 1948 Los Angeles streets, also filmed for later Hollywood movie use as stock footage.
Both videos look like a long lost world.
