Police investigating reports of teens riding on roofs of moving cars

MEDIA RELEASE

The Hawai’i Police Department is investigating reports that teenagers were riding on the roofs of cars on Kaloko Drive in Kailua-Kona.

Police have contacted the owner of one vehicle and are following leads in a second incident.

Section 24-155 of the Hawai’i County Code prohibits riding on any portion of a vehicle not designated or intended for the use of passengers.

Section 291-14 of the Hawai’i Revised Statutes makes it illegal to stand in the bed of a pickup truck while the truck is in operation. (That law also makes it illegal for someone to drive a pickup truck with a passenger seated in the bed unless no seating is available in the cab.)

“In addition to being illegal, riding outside a car or standing in a pickup truck are extremely dangerous,” said Captain Samuel Jelsma, commander of the Kona District. “These types of activities have caused head and spinal cord injuries nationwide.”
