Monument Trekkers

We moved to Hawaii about seven months ago and live down on Napo'opo'o Road. So, we have become very familiar with the parking mess for all those hiking down to the monument from the top of Napo'opo'o Road. I would be curious to know what history there has been in the love/hate relationship with that situation.

Lately it has gotten far worse, because the highway department is stockpiling gravel and dirt, so many of the areas formally used for parking are not available. It is now pretty dangerous, with people ignoring the "no parking" yellow tape, leaving the rear-end of their parked cars in the lane of traffic. Also, those who park further down on Napo'opo'o and walk back to the trailhead, have no safe place to walk other than on the actual roadway. I fear someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed.

Are there any plans to mitigate these risks for visitors and residents as well?
