Here Are 13 Thoughts Everyone Has While Driving In Hawaii
Anyone who has driven both in Hawaii and on the mainland knows that driving in the Aloha State is crazy different than anywhere else. And whether you commute to and from Honolulu every day, or spend less than an hour or two in the car each week, I’m sure you’ve had a few of these thoughts while navigating Hawaiian roads.
1. While your passengers are drooling at the phenomenal landscapes, “Wait, what did I miss?”
2. While going west on H1 at 4 p.m., “I can’t believe such a small island could have so much traffic.”
3. Twenty minutes later, after moving one mile, “Seriously, I could walk faster than this.”
Also: "Why didn't I use the bathroom before I left work?"
4. “I still can’t believe that it’s legal for people to sit in the bed of a pickup truck while cruising down the highway…”
5. “Seriously, how am I supposed to figure out what street I need to turn on when Siri can’t pronounce these street names correctly?”
Or maybe it's you who can't pronounce many Hawaiian street names properly yet.
6. After perfectly gliding through a hairpin turn, “I am obviously the best driver there ever was.”
7. “Why do construction workers in Hawaii insist on putting cones out TWO MILES before the work actually starts?”
8. “Was that a car horn? Drive with some aloha, lady!”
9. “Nope. Not that much Aloha, please. You’re definitely scaring me.”
10. “Well, that was a huge pothole… I better swerve before I hit the next one.”
Because everyone knows that in Hawaii, driving in a straight line down a road ridden with potholes, you'll be pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving.
11. “Why are you on your phone, man? Don’t you know that’s a $300 ticket here?”
12. “Oh, it’s raining. I better turn my windshield wipers on… Nevermind. It stopped.”
13. “I wonder if any of these seven brand new Ford Mustangs are locals… Yeah, no. They are all tourists.”
