Moving Violations (1985)


One of my favorite 80's comedies is Moving Violations.  Although most don't seem familiar with the movie, it does have it's only little cult following.   But let's get to some locations....

First up is the headquarters, which is in downtown Los Angeles...

And finally, the DMV in the film is the Brea Conference Center.   I have not been able to make it there myself, but my friend Shawn was able to take these great pictures and share them!












Don Cheadle!
