LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai County officials are considering new rules at bus stops because people have been using them as an overnight shelter.
The Garden Island reports that a public hearing on the issue was held on Friday, during which proposed rules were laid out.
The rules call for a ban on erecting any structure within a bus stop or next to it. They also call for prohibiting anyone from occupying a bus stop "in a way that inhibits full use by the public," in addition to closing stops between midnight and 4 a.m.
A person convicted of breaking these rules would be fined $100 or more, imprisoned for a period not exceeding 10 days, or both.
