Highway Patrol Day: 10-4!

Highway Patrol

Here’s a salute to one of my favorite childhood TV shows. Remember: “Leave your blood at the blood bank, not on the road. For ‘Highway Patrol,’ this is Broderick Crawford.”

    One of the best resources to see how LA looked in the late 50s. Especially the North Valley.

    2150-by..I watched them filming an episode on Hollywood Bl. just East of Vermont in front of a car dealership. CHP did not have the large presence in L.A. as they do now. LAPD policed the freeways then, in fact up to the early 60′s.

    I’ve only recently discovered this old TV series, and I can’t believe how much fun I’ve had locating the original filming locations. If you care to see where this madness has “driven” me, check out my Google Maps page for Highway Patrol sites: http://goo.gl/maps/VQmef
