Don’t get caught jaywalking

Jaywalking is technically illegal in a lot of places, but Honolulu’s devotion to the law is especially stringent. With so many vacationers — their heads in the dreamy skies — the city saw an “alarming increase in pedestrian fatalities” a few years ago, prompting the Honolulu Police Department to crack down with a Pedestrian Safety Task Force.

Now, with a fine of $130, not even tourists are immune from jaywalking tickets, and you’ll often see people obediently and patiently waiting at empty intersections.
