                                 RE: S.B. No. 1403

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


     Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which
was referred S.B. No. 1403 entitled: 


begs leave to report as follows:

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

     Comments on this bill were received from the Department of

     Your Committee finds that traffic safety and the flow of
traffic may be impeded by stopped, standing, or parked vehicles.
To ensure the safe and efficient flow of traffic on our roadways,
such activity should be prohibited in areas where it may
adversely impact the flow of traffic.  Currently, prohibitions
against the aforementioned infractions may be legally indicated
only with signs.  The signs, when posted in excessive numbers,
are an eyesore for the surrounding community.  Thus, this bill
strengthens enforcement by allowing the option to designate such
prohibitions with curb markings.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to
this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and
purpose of S.B. No. 1403 and recommends that it pass Third

                                 STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1757_______
