Tell Maui and HI that you’re not coming until they prove the place is safe.

Cyclists assaulted by driver and cops do nothing in Maui.

A friend of mine was almost killed by a truck while riding his bike in Maui. To read his article see Maui Road Rage: A Local Tried to Kill Us. It is amazing that he did not suffer greater injuries or be killed.

Simply put while riding his bike a truck driver cuts him off knocking him to the ground with his truck door. While on the ground the truck driver gets out of this truck and starts to threaten the cyclists. DL, the cyclists responded with a well place kick to the thinking part of the truck driver.

What is a greater in amazement is the fact that locals stopped to help him after the truck driver tried to kill him and got the driver’s license number and the police of Maui did nothing.

DL’s injuries were a skinned knee. He got lucky. However, we have to put a stop to this. This is assault, plain and simple. The act was a felonious assault because of the deadly weapon, the truck.
