STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1297

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

                  

 

RE:    S.C.R. No. 84

 

 

 

Honorable Donna Mercado Kim

President of the Senate

Twenty-Eighth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2015

State of Hawaii

 

Madam:

 

     Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 84 entitled:

 

"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING DRIVER EDUCATION AND LICENSING PROGRAMS TO EMPHASIZE COURTEOUS AND RESPONSIBLE DRIVING, INCLUDING THE REDUCTION OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose and intent of this measure is to urge the Department of Customer Services of the City and County of Honolulu and all driver training and education programs on Oahu to incorporate into their curriculum the teaching of courteous and responsible driving habits, with an emphasis on reducing traffic congestion.

 

     Your Committee did not receive any testimony on this measure.

 

     Your Committee finds that Oahu suffers from some of the worst traffic congestion in the nation.  Improving the education of drivers regarding courteous and responsible driving, with an emphasis on reducing traffic congestion, would benefit everyone who shares Oahu's roads and highways.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 84 and recommends its adoption.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
