Any Honolulu cyclists that ride on the road?

I found out sort of recently that bicyclists are required to stay as far right as possible when riding on the road according to Hawaii law. With no minimum passing law for cars, I often see bicyclists riding in the gutter and cars will pass within inches of them in the same lane.

I've been pretty ok with riding on the sidewalk, but have been having terrible experiences with crosswalks lately.

I talked to one cyclist who was actually ticketed by HPD for taking the lane. I was wondering if this was common or if that cop was just having a bad day?

I'm kind of at a loss, it seems like both the sidewalk and road are both lose lose. Why can't we just invest in some bike lanes instead of the money pit of a train we're building...
