Aban­doned cars lit­ter high­way

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - VIEWS & VOICES -

I took a drive on Kame­hameha High­way from Ka­neohe to Haleiwa with some guests of mine from the main­land. Some 21 aban­doned ve­hi­cles, in var­i­ous forms of de­cay, graced both sides of the high­way along­side the beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral land­scape. That’s about one ev­ery four min­utes.

The ve­hi­cles were not alone. We also saw a rusted-out water heater. I have not seen that kind of ugly rot gath­ered since be­fore they cleaned up Ka­paa Quarry Road in Kailua.

It seems to me the Hawaii Vis­i­tors and Con­ven­tion Bureau might want to assess the im­pact of this sight on our im­age as a beau­ti­ful des­ti­na­tion to visit.
