While hitchhiking is illegal in Kaua‘i, how do you feel about it?

Kayla Manini, Waimea

“It can be dangerous, but if you’re driving with a friend or family member, it’s probably OK.”

Jack Hendrickson, Lihu‘e

“I have no objection to it. It’s the hitchhiker’s and the driver’s own decision to make.”

Jillian Nakashima, Hanapepe

“Some people don’t have cars, so what else are they supposed to do? But at the same time, it is illegal and dangerous.”
