  • Should change the pedestrian’s attitude. If u cannot see my eyes I cannot see u. As a pedestrian, I always slow down and look for the driver’s eyes AND if they are slowing down acknowledging my presence. Forget about pedestrian laws giving you the right of way. Change that to the laws of physics. A 1-ton car will always beat a 150 pound animal.

    Funny my car’s driver’s side windshield column is thick and wider with the black plastic rain deflector. When I turn left into an intersection I cannot see a pedestrian. When she walks I still cannot see her because the column is still blocking the moving target as I drive forward. Pedestrian moves at the same speed my blocked column view. I will brake suddenly when I see her at the last second. Scary.

    • What an attitude. I would actually pay to see your performance in court, arguing that your victim was at fault because your car is bigger than her body. “Also, your honor, she was hiding behind my rain deflector.”

      If you can’t see where you’re going, don’t go.

  • Some pedestrians don’t care. The other day in Kapahulu area, a middle aged female steps into the crosswalk when the countdown was at 10 seconds while cars turning left in front of her. Luckily, last car had passed.

  • Government has done very little or nothing to slow down the speeding drivers on Lehua Avenue!!!! This street has been in the news many many times before … what is the public to do????? Get rid of our existing Representatives!!!! Instead we promote them and make them U.S. Congressman! Crack down on speeding drivers everywhere!!!! Speed limits are violated constantly .. the City could make money from all these offenders!!!!!
