Big Brother is not watching

The pair of devices that look like traffic cameras on the Puunene Avenue-Kuihelani Highway traffic signal aren’t, according to the state Department of Transportation. They are temporary microwave detectors that are used for traffic detection to help determine traffic light synchronization, said Transportation Department spokesman Tim Sakahara. These detectors will be used until new loop detectors that are embedded in the pavement can be installed. This photo was taken last week.
