Visual Description:  Near miss outside the barber shop.

LOVAC  =  VOCAL,  VEELA  =  LEAVE,  COSHOL  =  SCHOOL,  STOJEL  =  JOSTLE —   Giving us:  OAEVSCHSLE

Clue/Question:  What the reckless driver gave the barber.

Answer:  A CLOSE SHAVE

(I originally had “aleve”, in stead of “leave”!  What a dope!  But, I still had the Answer, regardless of my faux pas.  Of course, upon further review, I realized I had an additional “L” and was missing an “E”, because of my error.  I wasn’t thinking of the NSAID, per sé.  I was thinking more that the product was named after a verb.  But, I was mixing up words – in my little head – like allay and assuage, with alleviate . . . where the name most likely came from.  See what happens when you start to get cocky?!?!  “Jostle” was a pretty good clue word.  Stay thirsty, my friends.)   — YUR

P.S.  Remember George Carlin’s take on the near miss?  Priceless, and right on target . . . as usual.  God, I miss that guy! YUR
