FICOH Partners with EMS, HPD and Kalihi School to Sign-wave for Traffic Safety | Community Spirit
In Kalihi, about 50 Kalakaua Middle School students and faculty, the city’s Emergency Medical Services Division and the Honolulu Police Department were out during the morning rush hour with First Insurance Company of Hawaii’s Community Action Team (“First CAT”) waving signs for driver safety. Kalihi Street, between North King Street and Dillingham Boulevard, has been identified as one of Oahu’s most dangerous pedestrian areas. The sign-waving event was to encourage drivers to be alert when approaching crosswalks, especially near schools, and to slow down in busy traffic corridors.
First Insurance recently launched a campaign called “Take the HI Road,” aimed at bringing back courtesy to Hawaii’s roads. The company commissioned a survey that found drivers are seeing less of the aloha spirit from fellow motorists than five years ago. Drivers are invited to share their thanks for acts of courtesy they experience on the road at www.ficoh.com/takethehiroad.
