Ramsay LIVE: Pedestrian Safety Month

LIKELIKE ELEMENTARY (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ramsay Wharton takes you live to Likelike Elementary School to raise awareness for Pedestrian Safety month. See how you can help!

Likelike Elementary School teamed up with Farmers Hawaii and the Honolulu Police Department to alert drivers to watch out for children crossing the streets to school.

Ann Nakagawa, Farmers Insurance Hawaii Vice President says drivers they need to slow down and watch out for keiki. Last year a mother and child got hit in this crosswalk on Palama Street. It's a thoroughfare to the H1 from School Street and the cars parked on either side hide pedestrians.

The Farmers Hawaii Hot Spots Traffic Safety Program was created in 2002 in response to growing public safety concerns of speeding in school zones. Today's event is the 71st Hot Spots Traffic Safety event. Schools or concerned community members interested in holding a Hot Spots Traffic Safety event in their neighborhood should contact Farmers Hawaii at 544-3988.
