Ok so I haven’t really blogged about this before. To the Brainless Morons Jay Walking across Pi’ilani Highway, why cross the highway during the mid day or any time of they day for that matter? Do you not know what a cross walk is? Do you want to become car, truck, semi, bus, moped, motorcycle, dirt bike fodder? Do you want to become a mix of body parts and bodily fluid marks? Do you like putting yourself in danger? Do you need to learn the hard way? What gives? AND you put your kids in danger too? SMDH….. Next time I will film you and send it to MPD. Getting sick and tired of this. I’m getting SOOO SICK AND TIRED of seeing brainless people crossing major highways and roadways on Maui. As I stated before in other blogs about this, IT IS TOTALLY ILLEGAL TO JAY WALK IN HAWAII. You know what, I have given up on calling the police on this issue because even if they do get involved, the crime was already committed and they can’t do anything about it unless I take this issue to court. Why the heck do you put YOURSELF and YOUR KIDS in danger like that? I’m getting so sick and tired of seeing people like you come to the Emergency Room after breaking this law for something SO STUPID. Seen y’all doing this on the Haleakala Highway, Pi’ilani Highway, Honoapi’ilani Highway in West Maui, and the Mokulele Highway. Please THINK before crossing the road illegally. Remember this, IF YOU GET HIT BY A MOTORIST FOR NOT CROSSING THE ROAD IN DESIGNATED CROSSWALKS, THE DRIVER IS THEREFORE NOT LIABLE FOR ANYTHING IF THEY STRIKE YOU DOWN DUE TO YOUR STUPIDITY. NOW IF DRIVERS ARE TO HIT YOU IN A CROSS WALK, THEN WE ARE LIABLE.
HERE IS A MESSAGE FROM THE HONOLULU POLICE DEPARTMENT ON JAY WALKING, THIS IS IN ACTED FOR ALL COUNTIES IN THE STATE OF HAWAII, NOT JUST O’AHU:
Facts about “Jaywalking”
Did you know that there are people who think that it is okay to jaywalk?
Some people feel that it is inconvenient to use a marked crosswalk or to walk to the corner to cross the street. Some are in a rush and think that they can get across the street before the approaching vehicle reaches them. They assume that once they’re on the roadway the driver of a vehicle can see them crossing. Others assume that jaywalking is allowed because they see other people doing it all the time. But it isn’t.
Jaywalking is against the law
Jaywalking is against the law and is punishable by a fine of $130 for pedestrians who don’t obey the law in the state of Hawaii.
What is Jaywalking?
Jaywalking is crossing the street outside of a crosswalk or away from a street corner.
Jaywalking is dangerous and deadly
Each year more than a dozen pedestrians are killed and hundreds more are injured while crossing Oahu streets. To avoid becoming a statistic, the HPD urges pedestrians to use crosswalks, obey crossing signals, and watch out for drivers who are distracted or who disregard traffic signals.
Inattention on the part of drivers and pedestrians can lead to deadly collisions that forever change the lives of everyone involved. Stay alert, stay alive.
