With all the studies out, maybe someone could add up all the hours lower Puna spends waiting in Keaau-Pahoa gridlock, including the hours spent taking your kid to Keaau school when he should be at Keonepoko or waiting in one lane when the lane next to you is open, but it’s already 6:13pm and you will get a ticket if you dare. How many cars x how many people x how much lost time from work x air pollution x gas money x lung damage from inhaling exhaust unnecessarily. Personally, I think it would be great if the Shipman’s would gift Railroad and the beach back to lower Puna. They have enjoyed all the benefits for how long now? It would be very very philanthropic of them. Either that, or we as a land-locked group of many thousands of people could ask our councilmembers to seek imminent domain for the health and welfare of all travelers to this beautiful land, and seek it now!
