H-1 EB/WB Between Waialae Ave On/Off Ramp and Freeway End
Motorcycle officers equipped with LiDAR. guns sit on the Waialae Ave. overpass of H-1 and monitor speed of both directions of traffic at all hours except morning rush (6am – 9am). Officers also camp the On Ramp coming from Kahala Mall with LiDAR. guns. The entire straightaway is monitored from both of these ends, police will pull speeders over into the side streets i.e. Waikui St. or Wai’eli St. to prevent obstruction of traffic. Please resist the temptation to floor it coming off the downhill as the overpass officers are very hard to spot, and the On Ramp from Kahala Mall is not visible from the beginning of the straightaway. Veteran officers hand out possibly hundreds of tickets per week in this notorious speed trap and is heavily camped late at night from sundown to 11PM when third watch ends (watch is “shifts” for police, who patrol in 3 different shifts per day for 9 hours per watch). This can vary based on officers who are on overtime so be wary at all hours of the night.
