Speed mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the bus is about to jump the bridge, you can see that the bridge is flat, apart from the broken part, but when the bus jumps over the bridge, there's wood and stuff piled up at the end, making it "kick". (01:03:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When the police officers are attempting to rescue all the passengers on the bus while at the airport by driving up beside the bus, at one point you get a front camera angle shot showing the people jumping out of the bus onto the police vehicle. If you look closely, you can see the camera man sitting on his chair reflected in the window of the open bus door, he is wearing a white shirt with sunglasses.

Visible crew/equipment: When the bus is jumping the gap in the bridge, if you look closely in one shot, Sandra Bullock is not driving. Instead it's a large man that appears to be wearing women's attire.

Visible crew/equipment: The first bus explodes, and the traffic on the road mysteriously disappears. If you look down the road, there are construction barriers blocking off the entire road, which would not allow any cars to drive through.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the bus jumps the gap in the freeway, as the bus lands, the interior camera jerks down and we clearly see the cameraman's brown shoes.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the bus is exiting the highway on that sharp curve there's a medium shot showing the bus from the driver side. Look closely at the driver, it's either a really ugly woman or that's a man in a wig driving the bus. (00:47:04)

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where the bus takes the really sharp curve it kind of goes over on two wheels - if you look closely, you can see some sort of lift under the bus obviously causing it to tilt so far sideways. (00:50:10)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jack is taking off the handcuffs of the guy who shot Sam, you can see the top of a bald crew member's head with headphones on behind them.

Melissa

Visible crew/equipment: Close to the beginning of the film we see Jack in a coffee shop and his friend walks in. When they both leave and Jack goes to his car, a cameraman is reflected in the car window after the palm tree. Use slow motion if necessary. (00:26:40)

The-Immortal

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jack is running beside the bus and breaks the window to get the driver's attention, you can see a reflection in the window of the bus of a cameraman running. In the next scene where the bus pulls ahead, the reflection of the camera is larger and more noticable. (00:34:35)

Melissa

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam is shot in the shoulder it shows a camera shot from the side of the bus going into a wall. In this camera shot you can see the shadow of the camera. (00:40:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Howard Payne calls Jack in the bus and is saying he wants his money, etc, at the start of the next scene the bus can be seen with not only its front doors open, but the back doors open. A crewman is standing in the doorway of the backdoor, and it can't be Jack because when it cuts to him inside the bus he is standing next to Annie and he is telling her he is getting off the bus. (01:07:55)

The-Immortal

Visible crew/equipment: The side camera is visible when the bus has to make the tight right turn. After the bus returns all the wheels to the ground and before it smashes into the cop car, you can see the side camera.

Visible crew/equipment: A film truck with its crew and equipment is briefly visible in the reflection of a red van four shots after Jack directs Annie onto the shoulder (use pause to get a better look). (00:46:15)

Trivia

The famous "Dukes of Hazzard" sequence was the filmmakers' wry commentary on the uncompleted state of Interstate 105, which had become a running joke among LA motorists. It was finally (and quite uncoincidentally) completed in late 1993 shortly before the film's release, years behind schedule.
