Yes, always a good idea to play El Matador with speeding cars on the highway at midnight. What on Earth are these kids doing?

More shoddy reporting. Was the man in his 20's, as the first paragraph says, or his 30's, as the next paragraph says? And what does "near the Waimalu Shopping Center was he was hit" mean?

This comment is not about this story, however, as I was reading the editorial comments, there was a related story by Gary Nakanishi discussing our driving habits. He infers that "in the not-to-distant past, motor vehicles were required to come to a complete stop at the line next to the stop sign and then proceed with caution". I would just like to state, things have NOT changed-cars are still required to do the same. Then he goes on to say, "I pity the poor person on the phone or textgin while walking across the street". He has just given reason as to why there are so many traffic problems, but there is no change from then to now in regards to people stopping at a light. Its been done that way for years..
