Default Warning for Get Lei'd Cruisers....

.....who are planning on renting cars while in the Islands: Keep an eye on your local papers today for an Associated Press article about speed traps disguised as mini-vans on the side of the road. It is a very long article....but the gist of it is that the Transportation Dept. has begun using van-mounted cameras to catch speeders. These are the same type of cameras used for red-ligh/toll booth runners in other states.

So be careful out there and make sure that you leave your dollarsin Hawaii as tourist for fun things....not as law breakers in fines!

I once got pulled over by police in a rental car.. The officer asked me to "blow" into a device to test my blood alcohol level, and I said I couldn't because I have a rare lung condition, where any sudden exhalation could lead to a lung collapsing.
He said then we'd need to go to the station where a technician would draw a sample of my blood for testing. I said I couldn't because I am a hemophialiac and any puncture wound could lead to a bleeding problem.
He said FINE.. then told me to walk along the centre line in the road.
I said I couldn't do that either. Quite upset with me, by this point, he YELLED...and Why Not?
Because I'm drunk, I said.

Regards,
Kuki... who admits it's not a true story

I just read over on Cruise @ddicts in the thread I posted there, an answer from CruisinBryan (who lives in Honolulu) that the legislature has banned the use of the vans/cameras. Also that tickets were going only to the registered drivers. So....false alarm, I guess...sorry. Mgram
