HPD Sets Up New Campaign for Pedestrian Safety

Lt. Jerald Wojick Lt. Jerald Wojick

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Monday morning, there was a hit-and-run accident involving a 13-year-old girl walking to school on School Street.

She is going to be alright but police want to remind pedestrians and drivers to be careful.

The Honolulu Police Department has come out with a new campaign The Buck Stops with You.

It's an attempt to change your behavior to be aware of what's going around you, both drivers and pedestrians.

"So far this year, 63 people have been killed in traffic fatalities compared to 87 of last year which is better than before but there have been 20 pedestrians this year compared to 19 last year," said Lt. Jerald Wojick of the Honolulu Police Department.

The teenager hit by the car Monday morning was not in a crosswalk.

In fact, Honolulu police say of the 20 pedestrains killed this year only nine were in crosswalks.

The Department wants to remind people, please drive and walk safely.
