I'm not sure-- I could never lean my head far enough out the window at night to see. I tried sitting on the door frame to get a better angle but my right hand wasn't strong enough to keep the broomstick on the accelerator and I didn't want to take my left hand off the doorframe.

HPD is hell on wheels with speeders and DUIs, as they should be, but otherwise you really have to annoy them to get their attention.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

You can't enlighten the unconscious.
