* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Officer Poncho. Yes, he does threaten to take Jack's license but that's only after multiple speeding violations and that the last time he was caught, Jack was doing 40 MPH over the speed limit. Taken even further in that he tried to stop Jack but didn't know there was a pregnant woman in the taxi. After learning this he orders the other officers to clear the road for Jack, giving him a clear path to the hospital.
