Every year da Hawaii state legislature entertains bills and resolutions all da while yapping their jaws and flapping their arms on why THEIR bill/resolution has to be passed or why it's da next coming.
Wat I no understand is why they can't they come up wit some "common sense" or even practical ones dat benefit everybody - or da majority - in everyday life. They no live on dis island or wat? We all probably have at least one in common dat makes us wondah how come noboby brought it up yet...... probably cause it makes too much sense.
Then you got Rep. Jessica Wooley - as well as nearly every single politician saying just about da same thing - "Our job is not to run away from controversy, ignore or marginalize people's passionate concerns; our job is to make better policy for all the people of Hawaii." Now if only dat was true yeah?
C'mon, you know das Wassup Wit Dat! BIG TIME!
You know wat I'd like to see come to fruition? Well - besides car pool cams - I'd really like to see a bill/resolution passed stating dat any commericial vehicle and any passenger van/bus be regulated to travel only in the far right lane. It would be extremely impressive if dat was carried ovah to da City level as well but let's not stretch da common sense too far.
Tink about though, wouldn't traffic flow juuuuust a tad bettah? It definitely isn't a solution to our traffic congestion but it would allow for "fastah" moving traffic to flow easier without fear of being run ovah or being slowed or infamously cut off wea you gotta jam your brakes. Pluuuuuus, our roads would fair much bettah as you won't have heavier vehicles pounding da same road as oddah "regulah" vehicles. Try look at da City roads, evah wondah why there's cement at some - not all - of da bus stops? Cause da asphalt road cannot handle da abuse of a heavy vehicle's stop and go.
I would tink it would be more cost effective as well to repair/patch ONE lane rather than ALL da lanes no?
Back to da car pool cams. Da State always looking for money yeah? I can't imagine a bettah money maker than car pool cams. You don't need solo bikes sitting there waiting to nab da violators freeing up dat resource for watevah need be, you certainly don't need a separate department and you certainly can rake in da kala to make up da cost of da system I would say within a year. Also, it's only for a few hours a day and literally those citations can be in da mail da same day or definitely by da next. And guarans bombarans get some kine of technology dat can detect faces and know if actually get two or more people in da car. They already have signage dat says "Citation by mail" so why they no ack on it? Obviously everybody is ovah da fear factor dat no citation is coming via USPS.
To me, in WWD! logic, those are two "common sense everyday" bills/resolutions dat are "easy" to do and benefits da majority cause we all know you can't benefit everybody.
You got any oddah "common sense" bills or resolutions to add? Have you heard of any recently - or currently in effect - dat is pupule?
