HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The ongoing efforts to make Oahu’s roads safer will go one step further Tuesday as red light cameras at Kapiolani Boulevard and Kamakee Street are now live.

Police will begin issuing warnings to red light runners at the intersection of a deadly hit-and-run crash on Kapiolani Boulevard.

Crews installed red light cameras near the cross walk where 16-year old Sara Yara was killed while walking to school.

The alleged driver Mitchel Miyashiro has a record of more than 160 traffic violations.

The warnings for red light runners will last 30 days and after that they’ll be cited.

Raised speed humps are also being installed this week along Kapiolani Boulevard.
