Keiki call attention to the rise in pedestrian accidents, promoting safe driving
Keiki asking drivers to 'park your cell phone,' and 'watch for pedestrians.'
HONOLULU (KITV) - With the rise in pedestrian accidents, these keiki are sending a message to all drivers.
Ho'ala School and the Honolulu Police Department promoted safe driving by waving signs along California Avenue last Friday.
Senator Donovan Dela Cruz, Honolulu City County member elect Heidi Tsuneyoshi, members of the Wahiawa Hongwanji and representatives from the Blue Zone project all joined in on the initiative.
Since the sign waiving, the number of pedestrian accidents has rose. The total number of pedestrian deaths is 34, including a man hit on the Pali Highway when using the crosswalk Wednesday, and a 5-year-old girl that was hit and killed by a garbage truck Wednesday night.
