The Hawaii Strategic Highway Safety Plan (HSHSP) recognized Hawaii had the fifth highest pedestrian fatality rate from traffic crashes in the US over the 2001-2005 period and, by far, the highest rate among senior-aged pedestrians. One of the strategies identified in the HSHSP to help address this deficiency was the need to develop a pedestrian plan that was commensurate with Bike Plan Hawaii 2003. Federal regulations require the regional transportation plan to address pedestrian needs. A pedestrian master plan will be able to place more emphasis on this important travel mode and can be incorporated into the regional transportation plan update effort.
