Results from Lanikai no-parking pilot project under review

The city continues to review data from a no-parking ban in Lanikai this past holiday weekend.

Hundreds of drivers were ticketed for parking on the street or shoulder of public roads and streets in the area from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday through Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 15.

“We’ve really come to that point that to protect the health, safety, welfare, quality of life of the residents in this community, it’s time the city enforce the existing traffic code,” said Honolulu City Councilmember Ikaika Anderson.

In all, Honolulu police issued a total of 296 tickets, 231 of which were for illegal parking. Two vehicles were towed; one was parked in a tow zone, the other was blocking a driveway.

HPD also reported a decrease in parking-related complaints: just 12 compared to 30-40 calls received on a typical weekend.

Officials and lawmakers are considering whether to continue the ban. No decision has been made.
