K.I.T.T. has a roving red sensor on the hood, It is not only modelled after the Cylon's roving eye from Battlestar Galactica (1978), but when it shown in a close-up, and is moving, not only does it look like the Cylon eye, but also has the same sound effect of it moving as the Cylon's eye made.

During the entire series, "turbo boost" is used both for high-speed chases as well as for jumping. See more »
People are picking on this show for ridiculous reasons. IT was not SUPPOSED to be this great acted, perfectly mistake free show. It was an homage to the classic cliff hangers of the 50s. The flashing lights on the gas pedal were there for effect. It was never supposed to be a guide to those driving. A simple formula, really. Flashing lights = cool! By the way, to complain about show for mistakes and actually make a mistake in your complaint is kind of funny. We DID see the truck driver. In fact, in later years, he became a regular cast member. (And quite frankly, it made the show worse.)
The show was fine. Seriously, if you are watching the show expecting Shakespeare, then the mistake is YOURS not the shows.
