While assigned to duty at a weigh station, Ponch and Jon go after a hijacked truck.
Did You Know?
When Ponch speaks to the PVC truck driver, he mentions the fictional soap opera "The Troubled World" and Bob and Carey. On the immediate prior episode, CHiPs: Name Your Price
(1977), Bob, played by Tom Hallick
, and Carey, played by Jaime Lyn Bauer
, were stopped by Jon and Ponch for a registration violation, yet Ponch made no mention of this to the truck driver. See more
When teaching Jon and Ponch about the weight limits for axles, Vogt tells them axles other than front axles are limited to 20,000 pounds and front axles are limited to 12,500 pounds unless it is a certain type of truck. When the second stolen trailer comes through, the scale reads a maximum of 13,800 pounds and Vogt says it is a "good 3,000 pounds over." It was only 1,300 pounds over if it was a front axle, however when he calls Ponch he tells him it was the rear axle, so it was not overweight at all. Since it was not overweight, it would not have been flagged for inspection and the subsequent plot events would not have taken place. See more
