I am sitting by the phone waiting to see if our family dog will recover from surgery for two broken legs he suffered from a hit-and-run accident on the afternoon of Aug. 25.
As I write this, I can hear the sound of the speeding trucks and cars coming down Kilohana Drive, none of them doing the 20 mph speed that is posted on the road. Being adjacent to a playground, a dog park and the crosswalk, it seems that there would be more effort made to be cautious on this heavily traveled street, but there is not.
Why are there no signs to warn of the crosswalk? Why is the crosswalk not marked?
I called the county and was told it's not in their jurisdiction. I have called Alexander & Baldwin in the past and they say they are aware of the issues, but nothing gets done.
It breaks my heart to think that this will happen again and again.
What is it going to take to enforce the speed limits and address pedestrian safety issues?
And to the person who hit our dog and didn't even stop to render aid: I hope you made it to whatever was so important that afternoon while we drove the speed limit to the animal hospital hoping to fix the damage you did to our pet.
