One that always bugs me is when there's a car chase scene and you can see the skid marks on the asphalt from rehearsals or previous takes. I imagine it's hard (if even possible) to clean the rubber off the road, but I always wondered if maybe they could do the practice runs a hundred feet away.

For the life of me, I can't find it online, but a few days ago I was watching Smokey and the Bandit and noticed a good example of it. When he saw Sally Field in the middle of the road he locked up his wheels and skidded to a stop (or made a u-turn, or peeled out, I don't remember) and you could see 5 or 6 other sets of skid marks.
