Officials say it's an effort to improve access and safety.
Kincaid Kawananakoa has lived along the Lanikai Loop all of his life.
"When people can't get in and out and when emergency services can't get in and out that's really the issue," said Kawananakoa.
Officers patrolled the neighborhood. Within the first hour, they had already ticketed well over 20 vehicles.
If a driver is caught parking in one of the temporarily restricted areas, a ticket will cost you $35. A ticket for parking in the bike lane is $200.
Residents had mixed feelings about the restrictions.
"If there are laws I have no trouble with the police enforcing them," said Kawananakoa.
"Oh that's bologna they can get through," said Lopez.
These temporary measures are also being used to collect information on traffic volume and congestion. The restrictions will go through Monday.
