Honolulu Mayor unveils pedestrian safety measures

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and City Council Chair Emeritus Ron Menor, along with members of the Honolulu Police Department, AARP Hawai‘i, MADD Hawai‘i and the Honolulu Bicycling League, joined together today to announce a package of pedestrian safety measures introduced by the city.

The seven-point package of common sense initiatives is being called “Look All Ways,” and is designed to increase the safety of pedestrians, drivers and cyclists, while making all of us more aware of our surroundings.

“Our goal with these new measures is to introduce common sense pedestrian safety protections throughout O‘ahu,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “The people of this island want action when it comes to keeping pedestrians safe, and we’re working hard to put these new safety measures in place. While we know we’re not going to solve the problem of pedestrian safety overnight, each step we take will hopefully allow people to be safer while walking, biking, or driving on our roads.”
