HONOLULU — A woman says she was issued a $72 dollar fine on Oahu for honking her horn.
KHON-TV reported Friday that Lynette Atuaia says she was crossing an intersection when she used her horn because she thought another vehicle was cutting her off.
Atuaia says she did not realize the driver was a police officer until after she honked.
She says the officer then pulled her over and issued her a ticket.
Atuaia says the officer told her she should have seen he was an emergency vehicle, but she says the vehicle’s emergency lights and sirens were not on.
A Honolulu Police Department spokesman says Atuaia may contest the ticket if she feels it was issued in error. Atuaia says she plans to do so.
