HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A total of 19 pedestrians were killed and an additional eight were critically injured in traffic collisions on Oahu last year. The Hawaii Police Department is stepping things up with a Pedestrian safety campaign to raise awareness. Anita Nihei was the
victim of a driver who was not paying attention. She was hit in the
crosswalk while walking her dog. She is here on Sunrise to tell her story as a pedestrian accident
survivor and to promote pedestrian safety.
HPD is partnering with Walk Wise Hawaii for a pedestrian
safety and enforcement campaign starting January 24th to February 14th. Police officers
will be on the look out for and citing pedestrians and drivers
who commit crosswalk and other pedestrian-related violations. Officers will be deployed to
intersections and crosswalks
across Oahu, with some of the officers
posing as civilian pedestrians.
