In Neighborhood Watch,a group of skateboarding kids cause driving hazards.

Ponch and Jon return to their beat after attempting to purchase Dodger tickets on their lunch break. A kid on a skateboard interrupts the flow of traffic. A yellow Ford Granada speeds past; Ponch and Jon pursue. The driver, Jerry Billings, runs the skateboarder off of the road; Ponch lectures the skateboarder while Jon continues the pursuit. A car picks up the kid and heads off. Jon stops the driver who has apparently been stopped by Jon previously and gives Jon a hard time. The car that picked up the skateboarder squeals past and Ponch and Jon pursue. A kid is driving the car with three other kids as passengers. The car goes out of control when a skateboard becomes wedged beneath the brake pedal. The car eventually comes to a stop.The kids are released to their parents and briefing begins.

While on patrol, Ponch and Jon spot the skateboarding kids misbehaving in the parking lot of a grocery store. A girl is left riding in a cart as it heads into traffic; Ponch and Jon rescue her. While skateboarding, one of the kids knocks over buckets of flowers; the florist is irate. Cahill arrives and the kids are put in the back of her cruiser. She takes them to meet with an off-duty Ponch and Jon who take them to a skate park.

Young skateboarders become the focus of this episode of CHiPs.It will definitely entertain kids that see this show.
