HB 187 was introduced to the state house on January 18, 2019 and referred to the Transportation Committee. The bill has not yet been scheduled for a hearing or a vote.
A similar bill, SB 169, has been introduced to the Hawaii Senate.
HB 187 allows counties to start their own red-light camera programs and makes sure each county that has a program will share in the ticket revenue. The NMA is opposed to red-light cameras for many reasons. More information about our objections is provided here.
