Group Forms to Monitor North Coast Tourists

HANALEI, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — A new group is upset that too many tourists are using the newly reopened Kuhio Highway to visit the north coast. “Kuhio Highway Regulation,” says tourists are arriving without knowing that they need a reservation to park and visit Haena State Park only to be turned back by park officials. According to a story in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the group said only 100 of 400 cars they counted heading to the park on Independence Day this year had parking passes. They also claim that Kaua`i Police have been negligent in not ticketing drivers who illegally park along the roadside to get in. The newspaper spoke with Hawaii Department of Transportation spokeswoman Shelly Kunishige who said HDOT believes the new parking restrictions are being properly enforced.
