HPD responds to rise in pedestrian deaths with crackdown



HONOLULU (Hawaii News Now)- Honolulu has the dubious distinction as being worst city in the nation for pedestrian deaths involving seniors, and 13th worst for all age groups.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

The death of pedestrians continues to rise.  According to the Honolulu Police Chief, safety is the responsibility of both drivers and pedestrians.  Police will be monitoring those intersections with the highest fatality rates in hopes of preventing another fatal accident.  Another factor may be the diminished hearing and vision of some senior citizens, leading them to believe they are safe when they are not.  Looking both ways before you cross the street is always good advice.  Aloha, Russ.

  1. The older people just aren’t as nimble as they once were (trust me I know from personal experience) and everybody else is texting their 400 Facebook “friends” while they are driving because they are in a hurry to get somewhere important…like their AA meeting.

    1. I know what you mean. Even though Janice and I keep in shape (walking, sensible diet, no vicious habits), nature is taking its toll. As for facebook, I used it a lot when I was doing the news over KKGB-FM/KHLO-AM. Now that I’m semi-retired, the facebook experience is less important in my life. I gave up impressing people long ago.
