We first reported Monday that roughly 150 parking tickets were issued to Village Park residents for illegally parking in their own driveway and in front of their homes.

Some said they had lived there for decades without ever getting a ticket.

“I thought there was a criminal running around because there were three police cars,” said Village Park resident Harry Ginoza.

It was the last thing Ginoza expected to find on his car, which was parked outside of his house.

“I was kind of surprised. They never enforced it since 1986 so I was surprised,” he said.

“I came out of my house and I saw eight to nine police just starting to come and give citations,” said Manny Mattos.

KHON2 followed up and still today, residents had the same question. Where can they park?

“There is a misconception that says people think you can park in your driveway, but if your car extends out over the sidewalk into the roadway, you’re in violation,” said Maj. Kurt Kendro of the Honolulu Police Department.

It also brings up a safety concern for people who use the sidewalk.

“If the sidewalk is not clear, especially if someone is in a wheelchair and they are coming along, then they are stuck if the car is blocking. They can’t get around it,” said Louis Erteschik, Hawaii Disability Rights Center executive director.

The other issue is cars parking closer to driveways than they are supposed to be, which blocks the line of sight.

“We are trying to be reasonable,” said Kendro. “We understand that, but if people complain or people can’t get in or out of their driveways, we have to take enforcement action.”

But where can residents park, and what can be done so people living in crowded neighborhoods with limited parking don’t continue to get ticketed?

There is a pilot project being looked into, but it’s only for a limited area.

“I think other councilmembers are looking at other areas within their districts as well, but I think they also know this is something that we are going to need to have a pilot project for first to see how this affects the community,” said Honolulu City Councilmember Kymberly Pine.
