Commercial vehicles have parked on Moanalua’s residential roads for over 10 years, and have been a safety concern for many area residents. The length and width of the vehicles often obstruct motorists’ views as they drive through the area, and it has been more difficult to navigate narrower Moanalua roads. Though this has been an ongoing concern for residents, HPD has not been willing to cite these vehicles.
However, based on increased numbers of complaints over the past two months, HPD has discussed the problem with vehicle owners. They have finally cleared large commercial vehicles from Moanalua’s residential roads. Mahalo to HPD’s Corporal Evi Feato for resolving this longstanding community issue!
Speeding on Mahiole Street near Moanalua Elementary School, Moanalua Middle School, and Moanalua Gardens Missionary Church has also been reported by residents. I am happy to report that Department of Transportation Services is conducting an investigation regarding the installation of speed bumps (through September 30, 2016); and Honolulu Police Department has agreed to install a Driver Feedback Trailer (DFT) on Mahiole Street near the schools. The department will monitor west-bound speeds for three weeks (between May 2-20, 2016), and east-bound speeds for an additional three weeks (May 23-June 10, 2016).
