By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 12, 2012

~~<p>Question: On the Fourth of July, my son was charged $10 at 5:10 a.m. to park all day at the state lot at Kewalo Basin adjacent to Ala Moana Park to go surfing. The lot used to be metered until the state removed the meters and contracted it out. The District Parking Service attendant stopped everyone and asked for $10. My son said the charge is usually $1 an hour. Was this authorized?</p>
<p>Answer: Your son got caught in the state&rsquo;s attempt to control the frenzy for parking for the annual July 4th picnicking and fireworks off Ala Moana Beach Park.</p>
