A good friend sent me this video. I think you might enjoy it.
My shortest fare was a pickup at LAB (Life's A Beach) with a drop at Sansei. Back then our meter started at $2.50 and was $0.25 for each 1/8th of a mile. The first 1/8th mile was included in the "drop". The meter never clicked over. Started at $2.50 and ended at $2.50.
