Michael's middle name was Arthur. This was likely an allusion to the Legends of King Arthur in relation to his Knights. See more »
The "tires screeching on pavement" sound effect is often added while KITT is peeling out on sand or rounding a corner on sand/gravel/grass. Screeching sounds would certainly not be heard while driving on such surfaces. 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.
