For insurance purposes the studios usually don't let these guys do their own stunts. If Dan was stunt driving in the mall and had an accident causing injury to himself or John it would shut down production. That's why stunt people were invented, hate to say it but it's true ... they're expendable.
Some exceptions would be Tom Cruise and Jackie Chan. Tom takes unnecessary risks thinking it adds to the realism of the movie, he'll eventually be seriously hurt on set one day if he continues that reckless behaviour. Look at the Bonus Features on Knight and Day (2010) and you'll see what I mean, in particular the fall off that roof. An absolutely unnecessary risk. And Jackie Chan is just an animal lol. Although when he's doing a movie in the US the studios will insist on a stunt double. When he's doing a movie in Hong Kong, well, he's hanging off of helicopters and jumping off buildings and it's all Jackie.

The mall floor was covered by black tiles for sake of better traction and--perhaps--to ease the glare of reflected lights from the original, shiny flooring. Once cleared of debris/mud, one could see endless tire tracks from the Bluesmobile, some really dug into the tiling.
