Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?
“Jake is driving his taxi through a rough neighborhood….
…Jake spots a fare, turns the radio off, and pulls over. A hyped up, straggly looking white teenager enters the cab. His nose is running, and he keeps wiping it with his sleeve…”
rough neighborhood = gangster (bandit) quarter
spots a fare = catch sight of a client
pull over = bring a vehicle to the side of the road in order to pick up a client (passenger).
hyped = blatant
Thank you for your efforts.
Short of hyped, everyhing is fine.
If you are hyped, you are affected by drugs.
