City announces 24-7 enforcement of no parking signs in Lanikai

  • JAMM AQUINO / DEC. 29, 2014

    Cyclists travel outside the bike lane due to an illegally parked vehicle obstructing along Mokulua Drive near Lanikai on Dec. 29, 2014.

Honolulu police will begin strictly enforcing no parking rules on the bike lane side of the Lanikai loop beginning at 6 a.m. Thursday 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the city announced in a news release.

Residents have complained for years about traffic and parking problems caused by people flocking to the beach, named as one of the best in the world.

The Department of Transportation Services issued a news release about the stricter enforcement to give motorists, including Lanikai residents, a chance to plan ahead and remove all vehicles from the bike lane side of the loop along Aalapapa and Mokulua drives.

The city will also ban all parking on the unimproved shoulders of all streets in Lanikai between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Memorial Day weekend, May 28- 30.

    • I was told it was legal as long as the home owner gets a variance permit from the city and allow 3 feet for pedestrian walkway. Something like that.

    • I have a few acquaintances that have been cited, several times, by the City for putting rocks in front of their homes. They just remove them after getting cited and then put them back after a month or two… sad.

    • The City will have to decide now whether those areas in front of homes on the non bike-lane sides are sidewalk easements or public parking — but either way, it appears there are a lot of homeowners (or renter) blocking public from driving, parking, even walking on that side. Rocks, trees, shrubs, cones, mailboxes, etc…..So, soon, there will be no street parking. No guests or family members visiting. Great neighborhood? scofflaws on both sides of the issue and unequal enforcement means chaos. sure, drive through but don’t stay

  • I live on the 16 acre park in Mililani. It would be nice if HPD could enforce parking restrictions around the park during the weekend. Two and Three deep parking on Flag Football days make it nearly unbearable. Lanikai is not the only place pressured by the public on weekends.

  • So one of the wealthiest areas in Hawaii will gt 24/7 cops riding around looking to give parking tickets so the wealthy do not have to share their public beach becasue no one can park in Lanikai. Yep.
