ya know, the GREAT thing about Hawaii and it uniqueness, is that unlike most other states, hitting/running over/killing pedestrians is an "accident" NOT punishable. You get a freebee. Lucky we live Hawaii. (most other states call it negligent manslaughter)

Beretania between around Punahou St all the way to Aala Park is the worst for pedestrians because most drivers run red lights and make turns onto Beretania on red without stopping or waiting for pedestrians in crossswalks. A year or two ago a driver coming up Piikoi made a left onto Beretania and ran right over and killed an elderly pedestrian crossing Beretania on the walk signal. Anyone who crosses Beretania St knows exactly how dangerous it is to cross the street EVEN when crossing in a crosswalk and the walk signal is on. And yes most drivers who hit and kill pedestrians get a free pass. The worst was one driver who killed not one, but TWO pedestrians in separate incidents crossing a crosswalk on Pali Highway near Jack lane.

That's a pretty accurate assessment. I don't walk across Beretania, S. King, Kapiolani, Ala Wai, Kalakaua, Nimitz etc. I RUN. The less time you're out there between the curbs, the less chance you'll become roadkill.

You have good points. We have the laws but no enforcement. Look at the business district of Waikiki--ever see a policeman walk on the business side of the street? No, they might encounter a --- homeless person!!!! They walk on the peaceful side with the swimmers!!

Waikiki / Ala Wai / Kapahulu is really chaotic. If you feel compelled to do so take a walk down the "Kapahulu Raceway" and check things out. I used to enjoy an afternoon walk down Kapahulu...down Kalakaua or Ala Wai. I finally stopped doing this after an elder gentleman got run over this past year and then having to deal with the reckless bicycle riders and skateboarders who simply ride up your backside..."out'ta my way!" Ditto...no enforcement. Seems like an often used response to "laws being difficult to enforce" spills over to... "it will not be enforced (it's a nuisance)"...it wasn't like this ~ 10 years ago. I remember we had HPD bicycle patrol along the Ala Wai and in Waikiki...are they still around...I don't see them anymore.
