Hawaii laws are specific regarding mopeds

In some ways, police treat mopeds the same as motorcycles: All mopeds in Hawaii must be registered, and you must either a driver’s license or motorcycle training. However, mopeds don’t require insurance and accidents are treated the same as bicycle accidents.

Bicycle accidents often result in serious injuries

Temperatures are warm and comfortable year-round in Hawaii, making outdoor activities enjoyable. Due to increasingly crowded roadways, many Hawaiians are using bicycles as a main source of transportation. Not only are bicycles environmentally friendly and economical, traveling by bike is a great way to stay in shape. In fact, cycling is one of the most popular forms of exercise across the state. However, with increased numbers of cyclists sharing the same roadways as vehicles, bicycle accidents are occurring at a higher rate.

Premises liability: Woman files claim after severe injuries

In Hawaii, it is required that all stores, restaurants and businesses comply with strict regulations and safety codes to ensure the safety of customers and visitors. People across the United States visit Hawaii throughout the year to enjoy the first-class shopping and dining experiences available here. These establishments are literally booming with tourists year-round. Unfortunately, something as minor as a wet floor is enough to severely injure a person and constitute grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.

Pedestrian accidents: Driver flees after striking pedestrian

Pedestrian deaths have risen sharply in recent years across Hawaii. Pedestrians typically utilize sidewalks very close to busy streets. With more and more vehicles on the road these days, pedestrian accidents become almost inevitable. Statistics say a pedestrian is killed every 90 minutes in the United States.

Motorcycle accidents: Driver flees after injuring rider

In Hawaii, motorcycles are an increasingly popular form of personal transportation. Not only are motorcycles economical and convenient, but the great weather in Hawaii makes traveling by motorcycle very enjoyable. However, motorcyclists are notoriously less safe than regular passenger vehicles. Statistically, motorcycle accidents are 35 times more likely to result in fatalities than accidents involving only passenger cars or trucks.

Wet restroom floor results in premises liability lawsuit

Shops, stores and other places of business in Hawaii are required to maintain a safe, hazard-free environment. Many Hawaii residents visit grocery stores almost daily to buy food and other necessities. While customers shop and peruse these stores, the last thing they expect is to be physically harmed. Unfortunately, this nightmarish scenario is exactly what thousands of people across the county experience every single year. Unclean floors that cause customers to fall are among the most common premises liability claims.

Bicycle accidents: Cyclist allegedly killed by officer

Bicycling is a popular form of recreation and transportation in the state of Hawaii. The wonderful climate here makes for perfect riding weather year-round. Not only is cycling a great way to stay in shape, but it is also a very economical and environmentally friendly form of personal transportation. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents have become a big concern in recent years as roads across Hawaii become more and more crowded. Since cyclist are often totally exposed, these type of accidents often result in serious injury or death.

Safety tips for bicycling in the Hawaiian rain

Many travel agents recommend tourists to visit the Hawaiian Islands in October. The weather is not too hot, and you generally have lower rates for flights and hotels than the other months. For bicyclists, this feels like the perfect time to go since they will have more of the island to explore by themselves with reasonable weather.
