(KHNL) - Nearly 24 hours since Honolulu Police began putting a concerted effort into catching speeders on Oahu, it's been no tolerance, no excuses.
For Dale Clites, it's just another day on the job with HPD.
"You was going 67mph in a 50 mph zone. That's speeding," he said to a driver he pulled over on Moanalua Freeway near Halawa.
Speeding with two kids in the van will cost the driver $142.
"Everybody gets speeding tickets. If you speed, you get busted, you get a ticket," said Clites.
On Thursday, HPD announced a special, anti-speeding task force. It'll be responsible for slowing down drivers, like a 19-year-old driver who Clites pulled over.
"If we do catch a young one like that, I like that better because it's a chance that they can learn from the experience and not do it no more for a long time," he said.
Police say a laser gun doesn't lie so excuses don't work.
