When Jackson is seen entering the I-5 Freeway, the freeway is located in a trench which does not exist in Newport Beach. The freeway entrance scene was filmed on a stretch of the Sam Houston Tollway where Harwin Drive and Westpark Road are at ground level - the filming location no longer exists after 2003 when the Harris County Toll Road Authority relocated the Sam Houston Tollway frontage roads to ground level - the location since 2004 is now the interchange of the Westpark Tollway. Right after filming wrapped, the location where the BMW enters the I-5 later had a safety barricade erected when the Harris County Sheriff's Department (and its Precinct 5 Constable division) were cracking down on illegal tollway exits and entries bypassing the toll plazas.
