Take your own advice and stop taking drugs. Don't act like you don't, cause WE know better than that. Chinatown has many eyes watching you.

Stop pointing fingers already, look at his driving record.
Inspite of the lolos, I've concluded that Hawaii's drivers on the whole are more polite and considerate than any I have seen anywhere.
Due I think to the fact that so many are professional truckers, cabbies, or in the tour industry.

That is a positive way of looking at it, and something I need to keep in mind the next time I'm tempted to yell at someone for driving "stupid."

That being said, however, "polite and courteous" intentions do not always translate to "good driving."

You know what folks - you know who I "grieve" for? The unnamed, countless victims this fool will no longer threaten. Ever see the movie 'It's A Wonderful Life'? The one with Jimmy Stewart? Only the point was that taking a good man out of the picture sent out terrible ripples that affected so much more than his own life. But he was GOOD man. Not a reckless arrogant self-absorbed jerk. This is what's wrong with our country - we're obsessed with glorifying people just because they died. But what if his lost life saved some poor family their grief because he didn't crashed into them? Some poor tutu who won't be run down? A kid who won't be crushed and dragged because he's no longer on the roads? What do we say then? "Oh, dat stupid buggah." "He should've lost his license!" "Where were da cops!?", etc, etc. Ad nauseum. When do you guys stop being enablers and apologists for the morons in the world? My family all drive - and I fear for them every time they take to the roads - and why - because of knuckleheads just like this. Do I feel bad that he left behind a wife and two keiki - absolutely. BUT HE DID IT - HIS FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL. Anyone say there was gun to this guy's head? This shibai about a so-called mystery driver and cop chasing a green car - conspiracy theorists are the worst. Look at this way - his last act on earth was a public service.

Yeah just speed and stupidity. More people seem to be driving stupid than drunk these days. Ought to set up check points for that. "Excuse me sir I think you're too stupid please step out of the car".
