This Is What CHiPs Is Known For
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Wheels Of Justice,a repeat drunken driver's slick lawyer frustrates Jon and Ponch.

The episode starts when a repeat drunk driver causes an accident and switches places with his wife so he won't lose his license. After talking to the drunk's lawyer at CHP Central, Ponch and Jon go on their beat again.

The next day, Ponch and Jon are in court for the "Stan West" case and find out it was given a continuance. Next, Ponch and Jon stop by the hospital to verify injuries for Jon's reports. Later they check in the the new Deputy DA about the drunk driver.

When a gas main breaks at the hospital, the babies in the maternity ward have to be transported to another hospital. When a crazy driver names Stan West tries to knock a car off the road, the baby transporting ambulance gets run off. Nobody's hurt, but Grossman ends up holding babies until the CHP arrives to take the babies to Central. Ponch questions Stan West when his car is identified at the accident. Later at the drunk guy's trial, he is found guilty of public intoxication and not drunk driving.

In a few hours, Ponch and Jon return to the courthouse and reveal that "Stan West" is one of multiple aliases. Meanwhile, the drunk guy is out driving again. Ponch and Jon chase him just before he crashes. This time he doesn't switch places with his wife because she flew out of the car window and died.

This episodes is what makes CHiPs known for during its TV run: road chases and how the CHP officers deal with traffic violators and helping people during times of road accidents.
