My observation was that this year was tamer than prior years.
You also get to note the undercurrent of culture clash that exists on the islands.

Saw this running around the FoodLand parking lot
The driver told me that he had been stopped a couple of times by the cops but never received a traffic citation.
I can think of 4 or 5 different laws it would be breaking in California.

Pretty tame Friday night. I ended up with 14 runs, 2 to the airport, and only 2 of my runs were tourists. The other 12 were all residents. Thats rare.
Took over the phone as soon as I logged on and had 6 cabs (including me) on the road and I was also the only one not on a fare. Only had one reservation for the night. We all stayed steady until around 9:00pm. The first of the "day" cabs bailed at 9:30pm followed by the other an hour later. One night driver called it a night at 12:30am and the second one did the same at 1:30am. TMR hung in until 2:00am. Kahale's and Tiki were both closed by 1:15am
Only two trips after 2:00am. The first was just an in-town pu-pu and then a 4:30am reservation to OGG from a central Mau'i residence.
Most all my passengers were quiet tonight. I think they all were still recovering from Holloween.
There weren't even any fights at any of the bars the entire night. Now, that is really rare.
