  • observation! – – bicyclist? viaduct on-ramp? there seems to be an unnatural and illogical relationship here for any normal person with any sense. no amount of indignation or “logic” will suffice to rationalize that fact.
    conclusion! – – aaaah – natural attrition at its finest?

    • Early morning as well, all without lights and few obeying traffic laws, but I also see a lot of the same behavior on my daily drive into town from Laie, along Kamehameha Hwy.

    • Yes we all need to slow down, especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Just this morning, I was following a motorcycle on Beretania. Not once, but twice, in a span of about six blocks, the motorcyclist had to slam his brakes because two different sports cars, aggressively changed lanes cutting the motorcyclist off. Fortunately the motorcyclist was driving in a defensive manner. I’m assuming the car drivers didn’t see the motorcyclist since they were weaving back and forth between lanes trying to get ahead of everyone else.

  • Speaking of Bicycles – Yesterday on King St. While getting off “The Bus” near Pensacola a MS. bicycle rider, riding on the SIDEWALK rides thru Exited Bus riders. WHY wasn’t She off the sidewalk and using the “Bike Track” ? What the Hay did the Bike Track get Made for if the bike riders don’t GET OFF the sidewalk and use it?
