Nice job folks. This kind of interdepartmental finger-pointing leading to delays and inaction is a perfect example of the kind of County-State bureaucratic red tape that the Mayor said he wanted to eliminate as a key focus of his new administration. COVID-19 has reprioritized a lot this year… but this seems like a basic governmental process that could be revisited again for improvements, especially for environmental hazard situations like this. Mahalo for your kokua!
People here may hate mainlanders and the mainland, but if this happened there, it would be off the beach in 24 hours! It is insane how long cars stay abandoned on the roads and beaches here! This island is like a 3rd world country sometimes! People say “Protect the aina,” and then they trash it like this! LOL!
the people who cleaned it were protecting the aina, the drunk who crashed it and left his needle there is a mainland transplant living off your tax dollars. your food bank, snap, doing nothing but posing. So thats the stereotype of a mainlander, or now its the go pro and malibu barbie crowd, you know go pro and the trillion dollar mansion floating in hanalei? or the former malibu mayor who lives on the hanalei river who booted the homeless out of a shelter there….. either way, its disgusting. flat out DISGUSTING.so yes folks here dont truly like the mainlander, the haole or your perceptions.if you so love the mainland go back to the mainland, and if you truly love the aina and wish to malama it , take someone with you.
After visiting 3 of the glorious and beautiful Hawaiian Islands, my family and I were incredibly distraught about the number of crashed, broken down and burnt out vehicles that line the picturesque roadways of this amazing state!! So sad!! Not only that, the trash cans in the parks or along the roadside lookout points are HEAVING with trash and blowing around the beautiful landscape and ultimately into the ocean!! Totally heartbreaking!!! I wish there were more motivated people to help make a change for this spectacular environment and state!! Hawaii is ALWAYS in my heart!!! 💜🤍💗 Mahalo 💜🤍💗
Bravo to Megan & Kona!
I’m surprised you weren’t cited for violating some rules while doing a great deed.
Wow…great job! Great to hear about positive news nowadays. BTW…this vehicle is a Nissan Xterra not a Pathfinder.
