"A simple crosswalk to avoid future liabilities..."
A new bridge was just completed to make traffic flow more efficiently, however there is no crosswalk!)
Finally the new Wailua bridge and pedestrian way is open to the public, however the D.O.T. neglected to put in a crosswalk at the intersection of Wailua boat harbor, the entrance to Smiths Paradise Luau's.
It was impossible to cross Malka bound at the end of the new Wailua bridge pedestrian lane near the Ashton beach resort during last Sundays taste of Hawaii. I saw a few people almost get run over.
I spoke to the two young officers conducting traffic and there only reply was start writing letters. Please Department of Transportation send your engineer down there and take action, before someone loses there life.
A simple crosswalk would without a reasonable doubt be the best investment to avoid future liabilities, please install a crosswalk immediately.
