At the time of the episode's airing, Florida did not use that numbering format; however, in 2010, Florida did introduce an ABCD12 format for license plate numbers.

  • The Simpsons are all given the same sentence. Even though as minors, Bart and Lisa should have been sent to a juvenile facility, and Maggie as an infant is legally incompetent and thus should be exempt from punishment.
  • The sheriff should have been punished for abusing his power.
