                                 Honolulu, Hawaii

                                 RE: H.B. No. 1547

Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twentieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 1999
State of Hawaii


     Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.B.
No. 1547 entitled: 


begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this bill is to facilitate the enforcement of
the prohibition against stopping, standing, or parking vehicles
in designated areas on the highways.

     Your Committee finds that traffic safety and the flow of
traffic may be impeded by stopped, standing, or parked vehicles,
and should be prohibited when these conditions exist.  Your
Committee further finds that prohibitions against stopping,
standing, and parking on highways must now be indicated by signs.

     This bill proposes that the Director of Transportation, the
counties, and owners of private highways, with the consent of the
county official responsible for traffic control, may use curb
markings, as well as signs, to prohibit the stopping, standing,
or parking of vehicles on highways, when appropriate.

     Testimony supporting the intent of this bill was received
from the Department of Transportation.

                                 STAND. COM. REP. NO. 470________
