O’ahu, Hawai’i, a state that is ranked 2nd in the worst trafficin the United States for the year 2012 and 2013. This is due to a population of 905,000 people and where the total number of cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycle registered in Hawai’i are close to equaling the state’s total population. Having almost as much vehicles as the state’s population creates problems due to the roads not being able to sustain that many cars.
This problem had led to our government finding the best possible solution, which is to build a rail transit. In 2008, the rail transit system was able to get enough votes to start the propose solution to building a rail transit system to help alleviate the traffic.
Even though residents of Hawaii didn’t conform to the idea of having a rail transit system in Hawai’i, it was the number one public concern and traffic condition has been getting worse every year. This lead to an agreement with the government to build the rail transit system, which was the best possible solution to the stop the congested roads.
