This is one of the first movies to feature an airbag being used in a car. General Motors automobiles sold from 1974-76 had the Air Cushion Restraint System which was a regular production option (RPO code AR3) for full size Buick, Oldsmobile, and Cadillac vehicles (the police vehicle seen in the film was a 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88). This system did not have shoulder harnesses but retained lap belts (the Oldsmobile Toronado of the same era also had a passenger side airbag). The footage of the airbag in use was sent to the U.S. Congress so they could pass a law (the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991) dictating that airbags should be installed in all automobiles manufactured after September 1, 1998.

The California flag is clearly seen flying on the flagpole revealing that filming took place in California instead of Texas. See more
