Thanks to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin's Kokua Line for pointing this one out about three months ago, but did you know that it is against the law to urinate or defecate in a public place- but only between Ward Avenue and Nuuanu Stream, and between the ocean and H-1! Yes, that's right, this special law was passed in 2004- must have been a slow session- as most of the consumer complaints were about unpleasant, odoriferous places in downtown Honolulu, where people are still too often re-defining the concept of "rest" room. This nifty law is on the books through December 31 of next year, so now is the time to start sniffing around the legislature . Talk to your community representative if you want to see the boundaries of this law extended. It is currently a maximum $200 fine or a full 40-hours of community service if you choose to offend with this offensive behavior while in town.
