The Hawaii Judiciary just changed itís public information link for traffic offenses, such that it is now searchable by license plate number. If the infraction is other than a parking ticket, then the listing includes a name and link to the case. Each court case includes a number associated to that name. The court number is hotlinked to all other traffic offenses associated with that name and AKAs.
Over the years, I have logged the plate numbers and actions of JAMs that have intentionally harassed me and placed me in danger. In running the log of license plates, some interesting commonality has shown through:
1. Virtually all have been ticketed for speeding
2. Most have been ticketed for not wearing a seat belt
3. Many have failed to keep either their registration, safety inspection or insurance current
4. Less than 5% of the plate numbers did not show any offense
5. The other 95% mostly had multiple infractions.
6. Only a few had DUI convictions
With the name and if they own their home/condo, I have public database access such that I can look up their address. The phone book could also work if they list their address there (but Hawaii no longer requires the phone company provide phone books). I wonder if these people would continue to endanger cyclist if they understood they might get tracked down.
