Gov. David Ige is poised on Tuesday to sign four traffic-safety measures passed in this year’s Legislative session into law. Those bills include:
Senate Bill 663, which establishes a committee of local police, court and transportation officials to develop red-light camera programs in all four counties.
Senate Bill 98, which looks to clarify when vehicles must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians under various circumstances.
Senate Bill 693, which clarifies that pedestrians at intersections with flashing countdown timers should only cross if they can do so before the timer ends.
House Bill 757, which requires Hawaii’s state and county transportation agencies to adopt so-called “Vision Zero” plans, which aim to reducing traffic deaths with safer street designs, speed-reduction policies and other steps to protect commuters.
