  • Trivia

    • Starting with this episode, all motor officers can be seen riding new Kawasaki KZ-1000P/KZ-1000C4 motorcycles, as opposed to older model KZ-900Ps from previous seasons.

    • From CHiPs Online:
      After the tailgaters create their first accident, you can spot the jump ramps from the jumping cars.

      After Jimmy fires his agent, he calls someone and tells them to bring his Ferrari to the hospital parking lot. He then says instructs them to "leave the keys over the visor." If you had a Ferrari, would you do something as stupid as that?

      Luckily nobody stole the Ferrari...but they messed with the odometer! After the commercial, the lower mileage gauge is at 861, then 861, then 862, and in the final shot we see it change from 861 to 862. (You need a good freeze-frame to see this "Oops"!)
