Trivia

This is one of the first movies to feature an airbag being used in a car. The footage of the airbag in use was sent to congress so they could pass a law dictating that airbags should be installed in all automobiles. See more »

Goofs

The film is supposed to take place in Texas. When the trio are approaching the Courthouse for surrender, there is a long shot taken of the crowd awaiting on the Courthouse steps. The California flag is clearly seen flying on the flagpole revealing that filming took place in California instead of Texas. See more »

Unexceptional drive-in product
18 July 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

In the 1970s, just about nobody understood the drive-in audience like movie producer Roger Corman. So it should come as no surprise that several times in the 1970s, major Hollywood movie studios hired Corman to make drive-in movies for them. "Moving Violation" was one of those movies, but despite the resources of a major studio at hand, it isn't very successful for the most part. The movie does look slicker and more expensive than Corman's independent movies of the time, but not by much. There's almost no effort in writing a story or characters with depth - we don't even learn the name of one of the lovers before the two of them go on the run! As a result, the actors for the most part aren't able to do much with their characters, though Eddie Albert does shine in his somewhat brief role. As for action sequences, it's mostly car chases done in standard mode, so they lack excitement. If you're desperate, this may help 91 or so minutes to pass by, but even then you might wonder if this is a good way to use your time.
