Petition to Pass SB1191 sign now

The 2004 "Elderly Pedestrian Integration Report" prepared by SMS Research & Marketing Services, Inc., for the department of transportation indicated that there are approximately five hundred sixty pedestrian injuries in Hawaii each year and that an average of twenty-eight pedestrians die each year after being struck by a car. Elderly pedestrians, age sixty-five and older, constituted the highest number of pedestrian fatalities when compared to all other age groups in Hawaii. According to statistics taken by AARP, more than 600 pedestrians are hurt, and 32-pedestrians are killed in Hawaii every year. Senate bill 1191 calls for $3-million [to be taken from] from the state Department of Transportation's highway fund to be used for various improvements. Hawaii Senate Bill SB1191 (CD) provides for improvements in six categories to make our streets safer, both for pedestrians and for drivers. (Copy of the Bill is attached)

The attached petition is in support of the passage of SB1191 in order to minimize or prevent pedestrian accidents and deaths in the State of Hawaii. We, the undersigned, are members of the Hawaii community, or visitors to this state, and we demand safer roadways for pedestrians. Governor Lingle, please pass this bill and know that the people of Hawaii chose to be safer on our streets and that we want our keiki and kupuna to arrive alive! (Author: Lisa Sturm, Kaneohe)
