Hawaii Tourism paradise has a dark side: 117 people dead in 2018
One of the most popular US travel and tourism destinations is also a destination with a dark track record of 117 people that died on its roadways in 2018. One outspoken leader in the travel and tourism industry is the CEO of Charley’s Taxi in Honolulu. She has been outspoken in traffic safety issues and invested heavily to make a difference.

Tourism income is at its peak in Hawaii, but as it is true in many destinations, this wealth does not usually stay in the Aloha State.
Hawaii is known to have the worst roadways in the United States and the highest maintenance costs for road repairs. The results are accidents and flat tires, but in some cases it means death.
