To My Fellow Highway Patrol Fans:
Welcome to the Web Page dedicated to the show we grew up watching. If you are like me, I can never get the site of a big black & white Buick zooming down a wide open California freeway out of my system.
Over the years, my love of "Highway Patrol" has led me to collect video copies of the episodes, articles, photos, toys, and finally to build a 55 Buick Highway Patrol replica! I have had the honor of meeting many of the show's stars, advisors, creators, and directors. Along the way I have learned a great deal about 50's TV, Ziv productions, and the real California Highway Patrol.
I commend Glenn Davis for putting together this fine Web Page, so these memories could be shared with other big boys who become mesmerized when they hear that familiar refrain.
Many Happy Highway Patrols,10-4!

You have found THE Highway Patrol Show site!
For all of you, like me, who have previously failed to find any sites truly dedicated to the preservation of Dan's legacy; this is your chance to come forward and join the premiere group of fans. Sign the guestbook so that the scope of Danism can be seen. This may lead to something big; a movement.
Thanks to Gary for bringing the memory to life and to Glenn for the forum to express it.

Yesterday, I learned Robert Waguespack recently passed away. Robert was a big
fan of Highway Patrol. He used to come to various car shows where we became
friends and he even got to meet Kelly Crawford. I'm grateful for the fact my
car and our website added some joy to his final days...10-4!

Happy New Year to all Highway Patrol Fans. It's been 18 years since we started this site dedicated to a television show that still on the air after first being broadcast over 60 years ago, 10-4!

I just checked This TV's web site and no Highway Patrol episodes are listed. On Monday 1/4/16 at 5 a.m., This TV is airing Rat Patrol in Highway Patrol's usual spot. It may not be a bad thing if it means someone else can air the show. This TV wasn't airing all the episodes anyway or the closing remarks by BC.

I have noticed in the past that THIS TV gives series a "rest", then later runs them again. Series like Run For Your Life went away, came back for weekends only then every night.
Highway Patrol could pop up again on multiple channels,hopefully, as you noted, with the Big Guy's closing remarks restored.
I think it would be a natural to pair it up with Adam-12.

Years ago I talked to the head of MeTV about doing intros to each episode dressed as Broderick standing by my 55 Buick and they were interested! I'd sure like to see them get the rights to the show.

Watched Highway Patrol when I was a kid. Now that I'm older, I bought a DVD at Cracker Barrell that had the Best of Season 2 on it and I was hooked, again!
I bought every season of the show from Best Buy and I'm in Heaven! LOVE this old show!!

"Dear Gary My Friend I Used To Watch It Sometimes. Broderick Crawford Played"
Delbert,please stop starting every word with a capital letter. It is beyond annoying, and people won't read what you want to share.
Also it is bad form to ask Gary to send you the series on DVD. He does more than his share by providing this site. Why should he buy you gifts?
With all due respect, by posting your address and phone number, you lay yourself open to getting unwanted attention from all the nuts out there.
Or worse, you are not this Delbert and you are putting his info out there
with this post to cause him trouble.
No disrespect meant if the post is legit, Delbert, but on the other hand I smell a rat.

Hey Dellie Goose
Your posts here amount to little more than 'goose' droppings. They are like a broken pencil, pointless. I suppose we can hope you evolve but alas,like your underpants,the chances of change are small.
You might try devoting your energies elsewhere. Turn off the computer,step out of your parent's basement and enter the daylight.
Approach a real live girl and ask her for a date. But do not show her any of your writings/scribbling lest she taser you and then calls up Dan Matthews and the Highway Patrol to haul you off to a rubber room.
Mike from Jersey Far away from Delbert, thanks be to God Apr 07/2016 16:40 PDT
Highway Patrol one of the best all time Police Shows.
Broderick Crawford also one of the best.
Would like to get some memorabilia. Wish reruns were broadcast.
Thanks for the memories

I have always enjoyed watching HIGHWAY PATROL with my dad in the 1950s, when I was just a young boy. Now in 2016 and much older, I still enjoyed the program now on DVDs. Thank you for the website on this great television program.- 10-4!

Here is something our fellow Highway Patrol fans might enjoy.
I just finished watching the first episode of Stakeout, from Sept. 26, 1959.
Starring MacDonald Carey as the legendary lawyer Herbert L. Maris , a real life attorney who specialized in hopeless cases and the wrongly convicted.
A ZIV production that ran for 2 years and 78 episodes, you can watch it on Youtube.
It's the flip side of Highway Patrol, but with better production values if only because ZIV had more bucks to spend than when it started up with Highway Patrol.
Also like our beloved Highway Patrol, it's filmed for the most part outside(rarely done anymore with today's series, too expensive, so they are back lot or set bound).
This becomes an added bonus because it becomes a time capsule of 1959 California, you get to see the cars,the streets, the stores and the people of the era.
Perhaps one of you Californians can tell me if it was filmed in the same areas as Highway Patrol?
Reflecting Stakeout's bigger budgets this episode boasts the great character actors John Doucette, Vic Tayback and Leo Gordon(a real life ex-con who went straight and one of the toughest SOB's ever in Hollywood). Plus Jack Hogan from Combat and as the brassy blonde the reliable Peggy Knudsen who was always cast as a B girl become she literally fit the role so well.
I can't put my finger on why but I seem to enjoy all the ZIV productions, starting when I was a kid and got up every saturday morning at 7 am to catch Cisco Kid reruns on channel 5 out of NYC.

Happy 10-4 Day 2016!
Gary Oct 03/2016 23:45 PDT
this is what I observed from this great show. the crew is identified by name and
what they did for the show (i.e. eddie davis..director) Broderick Crawford is identified as Dan Mathews. As for the rest of the cast, the actors real name is credited without the role they played.

I just noticed this:
"Years ago I talked to the head of MeTV about doing intros to each episode dressed as Broderick standing by my 55 Buick and they were interested! I'd sure like to see them get the rights to the show.Gary"
Gary,that would be great! Maybe one of the other networks of that ilk might be interested, such as ANTENENA, COZI(which has in the past had a ultra fan introduce Magnum PI marathons)or H & I network. By the way, I always thought running ADAM-12 and Highway Patrol back to back would be a natural.
