Students and Faculty of Keonepoko Elementary School teamed up with the Hawaiʻi Police Department to remind motorists of safe driving habits.

The two-day event consisted of approximately 60 students, two faculty members and Police Officers from the Community Policing Section, School Resource Officers and Traffic Enforcement Officers.

Fines for the above violations are as follows:

  1. Speeding in a School Zone – $322.00
  2. Mobile Electronic Device Prohibited – School / Construction Zone – $347.00

    Fine for parking in the roadway? Parents will stop blocking traffic only when there are consequences. A possible solution: Remove “sidewalk” barriers along north side of Kahakai Blvd past Aama, Ahi, Aholehole, Aku Streets, so cars can wait on the shoulder there, not blocking traffic. And enforce no blocking traffic in front of the school!
