Attorney Barry Sullivan joins producer/host Coralie Chun Matayoshi to discuss:

  • how a 128 year-old law established the fundamental right of public access to roads, paths, and trails
  • why disputes still exist over who can claim private ownership over a roadway
  • how crafty people make millions of dollars by claiming ownership of roadways in question
  • why residents and business owners should raise questions and claim their rights to use the roads safely
  • steps we can take to discourage profit-seeking individuals from taking advantage of this situation, including taxing, enforcing zoning and land use laws, and clarifying responsibility and liability for these roadways.
