Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe. Here are the current travel restrictions.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

Safety Inspection

In response to 144024: Registrations, posted by Mark S2 on Wednesday, 29 April 2020, at 5:56 p.m.

It is correct the State has temporarily suspended the requirement of inspections to renew vehicle registrations. However, I am confused by their logic.

Car repair/service centers are open (dealerships for sure) who are capable to do the inspections. Speaking to them, they say the "computer system" of the State to record the inspection and issue the decal is not available to them.

That is confusing, since the computer system for generating the vehicle registrations is working. Making some phone calls, I was told, "If we did the inspections, people would have to go out with their vehicle and interact with service people. But, since registrations can be done through the internet, mail, or the kiosks, we saw no reason to shut that down."
