Is Kalanianaole Highway Dangerous for Pedestrians?

Preliminary research doesn’t suggest so. (click to enlarge)

This five-year (2010-2014) GIS map of pedestrian /  motor vehicle incidents was generated by the Hawaii Health Department’s Injury Prevention System Branch and can be found under their self-named heading, crash map.

What this map doesn’t tell us however, are the number of unreported incidents and near-misses that occurred.  I’m sure pedestrians attempting to cross Kalanianaole tell a different story.  Regardless of empirical evidence, let’s all exercise a little more caution with one another.  One incidence dot is already one incidence dot too many.
