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.
On June 25, 2020, a statewide order from Governor Ige states that you must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Hawai'i. Beginning August 1, individuals with a valid negative test up to 72 hours prior to their trip will be exempt from the quarantine.
Be aware that others on your flight may not have opted to test early and may be infected.

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.

Expired safety stickers

Everywhere I have lived, it is a curious habit of mine to look at license plates while sitting at lights. Having lived here in Hawaii for two years now, I have a question about safety stickers.

I have seen many expired stickers, some a year or two expired, and the other day saw a safety sticker which expired in 2017. Almost all of those had current license plate tags. My first thought was someone just keeps forgetting to put it on the car, but the places I've gone to for inspections say they are REQUIRED to put them on the vehicle so they don't get swapped around.

I thought a valid safety inspection was required before you could renew your plates, so how are these vehicles driving around with valid plates but seriously expired safety stickers?
