RE: S.B. No. 98
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 98, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CROSSWALK SAFETY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify that a driver of a motor vehicle must yield to a pedestrian by specifying that a pedestrian is considered to be within an intersection or adjacent crosswalk when any part of the pedestrian's body, mobility device, or bicycle is beyond the curb or edge of the roadway or has moved onto an intersection or crosswalk.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 98, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
CHRIS LEE, Chair
