Pedestrian Safety

For KIA members who "live, work or play" in Kakaako, pedestrian safety is very important. With so many accidents happening around the island, here are some safety tips for all of us:

When crossing at a lighted intersection, be sure to use the pedestrian signal button and wait for the walk light indicator. Did you know that you cannot start walking when the numbers are counting down?
