Dissimilar signs confuse parking at lifeguard spots

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 23, 2012

~~<p>Question: I was at Ala Moana Beach Park after 5:30 p.m. the other day and was going to park in a lifeguard stall because they had all left for the day. A man in civilian board shorts, parked in a lifeguard stall, told me, &ldquo;Eh, you cannot park here. This only for lifeguards,&rdquo; as he took his surfboard off his vehicle, obviously going surfing. Why is it that the lifeguard parking stalls at Ala Moana are reserved 24/7, when other beach parks only reserve the lifeguard parking when they are on duty?</p>
<p>Answer: For most of the city&rsquo;s lifeguard-reserved stalls, &ldquo;there really is no reason&rdquo; people cannot park in them when the lifeguards are off duty, acknowledged Ralph Goto, administrator of the Ocean Safety &amp; Lifeguard Services Division.</p>
