DDD 2009


On Jan 8th 2007, around 1:50 pm, I observed a KHON [local TV station] vehicle (license plate KHON 3) being driven in a careless manner. It was raining and I could not see who was driving. However, in the 3 minutes that I observed this car first on Haiku Rd and then on Kamehameha Hwy, the driver exceeded the speed limit, never once used signals when changing lanes or turning, and did not stop when turning right on a red light. I mean did not stop! Not even a "Hollywood stop". S/he slowed and pulled right into the corner and then continued on as there were no oncoming vehicles.

In just that short period of time, the driver appeared to be completely clueless about basic driving rules. I shudder to think what s/he must do on a regular basis. This not only poses a hazard for other drivers, it reflects badly on your station.

Sent the above email to the TV station and no response!
