At 22, Martin Ludo was a community college dropout worried more about his punk band than his future. But finding himself with no job and no idea what to do next, he wound up behind the wheel of a taxi cab. Armed with the help of an insane cabbie mentor, Ludo takes to the streets of wealthy Orange County, California to drive drunken passengers around the bars, beaches, and nightclubs of the OC.
Along the way he meets celebrities, prostitutes, OC MILFs, alcoholics, and even the mayor of Anaheim. He learns with expert precision how to tell if someone is going to puke, how to deal with people having sex in the backseat, and above all how to always get paid. Keep the Meter Running is a hilarious collection of stories that will tell you exactly what your cabbie really thinks of you. Told with Ludo’s unique voice and sardonic wit, these are taxicab confessions unlike anything you’ve ever read before.
