You know, doing an "Exhibtion of Speed" in the parking lot in front of the Police Station is not something you should do when you are drunk. The video just shows the flashing lights and ambient sound but the dude driving the pickup was really surprised when he smoked his tires again and there was a patrol car just 10 feet away. Blue lights, failed field sobriety and soon to be out $1,000. It was a company truck, so he might have more problems ahead.

It was a good night. I opened the shift with a Wailea/Ka'anapali and closed it with a Wailea/OGG. Put 7 more in for the "filling". The Ka'anapali run did have a few difficulties. We were delayed on the Lahaina side of the pali. Some idiot devised a way to make a hard right-hand turn into the cliff face in his old Astrovan. 4 police cars, 2 ambulances and 1 firetruck later they started alternating traffic past the scene. Added 15 minutes of "wait time" to the meter. Get to her resort with $98.90 on the meter. She only had $92 and no credit card. Not much to do. Just took what she had and wrote off the rest. Sigh.

9 fares / 158 miles / 1st quarter $200 bracket

Its TGIF! Have a great weekend!
