Did you just get triggered by some obscure National Geographic story from 30 years ago?

From the video: "Every day, drivers can sit for hours staring at brake lights."

While they're showing video of multiple lanes of bumper to bumper cars doing the stop and go... with nary a bike or a bike lane in sight to blame it on!

Yep. It's all cyclists fault!

Maybe if some more people rode bikes there wouldn't be such gridlock on those freeways.

Coffee guy sure had a long tie, but his vision is way too short. A better road environment for cyclists could bring a bunch more business.

This just about sums it up. Glad I don’t experience this living where we live. Not so sure Hawaii is paradise.

Not paradise; especially for conservatives; and the many liberals who are easily triggered by false ballistic missile attacks.

For those that bought houses before 1985 when the prices started going crazy high, it is a good place to retire.

If your a cyclist not afraid to take the lane, it is a very good place for cycling. Trade winds blow most of the motorist pollution away so we do not have to breath much of it even in heavy traffic. There is some good single track for mountain biking. Technical trails are more roots rather than head bashing rocks.

Other than some stupid bicycle license sweeps by cops on Oahu, the cops mostly leave cyclist alone.

Did your retirement trigger such strange reactions?

Careful now, such talk can trigger exploding heads among those suffering from windshield entitlement complex.

They are just reporting the hate. I have no idea why anyone wants a car there anyway. It's an island! It's seriously a good candiate as a place to totally eliminate cars, there is just not much point to them in that environment.
