Community members sign-waive, ask drivers to slow down after 'near misses' prompts traffic safety concerns in Manoa
Elementary school students woke up extra early Monday morning to spread the word and sign waive outside Manoa elementary.
This intersection outside the school is a hot spot for speeding.
The school principal, representatives from Farmer's Insurance and Honolulu City Councilmember Ann Kobayashi joined them to share the message.
"The school has been worried, there have been near misses because a lot of times, children are running across the street and cars are speeding because this is kind of a straight away," Honolulu City Councilmember Ann Kobayashi said.
Honolulu Police Department reports that 38 people have died in traffic accidents on O'ahu this year.
