Highway Patrol was a half hour syndicated crime drama produced from 1955-1959. The great Broderick Crawford played Chief Dan Matthews,the only regular on this series. Most of the action took place out on the endless highway,where Chief Matthews and his men did battle with assorted bank robbers, kidnappers, and hijackers. Traffic safety,their stated job at the time,seemed to be a low priority. Lots of cool hardware: big Buicks, helicopters, and Harley Davidson Police Special motorcycles. Filmed in black & white,the way it should be.
