Seems like Al Gore III ain’t the only one experiencing a little lead foot action with the Toyota Prius. According to AutoBlogGreen, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak received a $700 ticket (ouch!) for going 105MPH in a Prius on March 28th. When pressed for comment, Woz denied the charges saying, “Not true,” Wozniak replied: “104 MPH.” “I pleaded guilty, with an explanation” he says. Apparently he’s driven all over the world and has “gotten used to kilometer speeds.” The judge wasn’t buying it, however, and fined him anyways. From the article,

“The Prius, Wozniak said, handled great at 104. And that wasn’t the first time he reached the speed that sends shudders down my I-like-60-mph spine. The first time came one Thanksgiving when he decided to drive down to a Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank. ‘Highway 5 was empty that night and I made good time and was surprised to discover that the Prius was very stable, even with major gusting winds,’ Wozniak said. Being used to a Hummer I expected the opposite.'”

Yes, the guy owns a Hummer, so don’t feel too terrible for him. But points to Steve for saying that he’s owned eight of Toyota’s hybrids over the years. Eight?! That’s about one per year since they first hit North America in 2001. Sounds like a fan.
