About the Pedestrian Law
Section 291C-72(a), Hawaii Revised Statutes, has been amended by the 2005 Legislature and now states that “the driver of a vehicle shall stop and yield the right of way to pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger.”
