Goofs

As Coffey and Bates patrol in their unit, which is prominently marked as 2203, they come upon Belker's abandoned car. While they speak with each other, the interior shots of the car reveal that the windshield has no rear-view mirror on it. An exterior shot of the car as its point of view approaches straight on towards the camera without any indication of the unit number, now shows a rear-view mirror on the windshield. Then in the following exterior shot when Coffey and Bates exit the car, point of view camera angle from the side that clearly shows the unit's number of 2203, again shows no rear-view mirror attached to the windshield.
