"CHiPs" Roller Disco: Part 2 (TV Episode 1979) Poster

(TV Series)



Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Carlin's auto crashes into the telephone pole, no electricity is discharged from the wires. In addition, despite the pole and wires landing on the car, the officers approaching the vehicle to make the arrest take no precautions regarding the possibility of any wires still being live.

Telephone wires only carry about 48 volts of electricity, so they're not dangerous like power lines. That's definitely not enough electricity to cause visible sparks, and even if someone touches a live telephone wire, he or she probably wouldn't be shocked, although he or she would feel the electrical current.
