“All the residents you see here are really concerned about speeding, about noise, about people who can’t understand that we all live here in the Aloha State, so we should live aloha,” said Sen. Sharon Moriwaki.
Sen. Moriwaki is asking people to drive with caution, not to speed, and not to make a lot of noise. She hopes these tips will preserve the quality of life for people who live in the surrounding area.
