Residents concerned about pedestrian accidents along busy highway

Populations across the state of Hawaii are on the rise. The natural beauty of Hawaii combined with a warm climate make it a great place for residents to enjoy a host of outdoor activities such as walking, running, hiking and biking.  Those who live in Hawaii's cities and towns often choose walking as a primary source of transportation, since walking is economical and has many health benefits. Unfortunately, walking along crowded city streets can be very dangerous. After several pedestrian accidents, residents in the city of Nanakuli are calling for more crosswalks and better infrastructure for pedestrians.

In the last month, accident reports indicate that four people died along busy Farrington Highway near Nanakuli. According to recent reports, two men were hit as they changed a tire and another pedestrian was hit just last weekend along this busy roadway. Several leaders and residents are voicing their concerns.

Many complaints cite drunk drivers and speeders, while other residents are blaming poor infrastructure for the recent accidents. Fortunately, many improvements are being made. Reports say that the Department of Transportation is in the process of relocating crosswalks. Also, a new auxiliary center lane is being installed and improvements are being made to lighting along the highway.

The wonderful climate in Hawaii allows residents and visitors to enjoy outdoor activities year-round. However, those taking advantage of these activities must always be aware of their surroundings. Tragically, pedestrian accidents often prove to be fatal. Those that have been injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident may be able to take legal action. A successful lawsuit could result financial relief to help struggling families.
