New Hawaii Safety Check Law

The new hawaii safety check law starts November 2013.....If any of you have illegal trucks whether tint, lifts, lights, etc.....Get it renewed in October before the new law goes into effect. Starting November each of the safety check stations will be taking pictures of your vehicles and sending it in to the City and County of Honolulu DMV.

If you need hook ups send me a email.....

I don't think they changed any laws on recon, so lifted should still be good.

Here's a thread with info on recon:

here's my issue with recon/inspections. when i got my recon done for my mustang, he checked my tint, checked for aftermarket HID, and made me push my car down to check the suspension. how is any of that relevant? so that one guy walking around my car is going to deem it "legal"? i dont understand why the regular safety inspector cant do that. the safety inspection is much much more thorough. you could pass recon, and then fail safety because your mods were done poorly.

recon is a joke to me. a stupid joke

Recon is just an extra step for the state to make money.

loosing money though. how much does it cost to run the recon station, pay employees, etc.

i doubt $15 a car, or whatever it is, is profitable for the state.

we have people here that think anything modified is unsafe. There is no such thing as pursuit of happiness down here...its all about what the government wants you to do.


DLNR still gets to cruise lifted trucks with aftermarket tires and rims with no mud flaps.

exactly. I grew up using 4wd to get to places. It's ridiculous. Theres a reason why eople do straight fronts and put armor on vehicles, but we need clearance too!


The laws here make things complicated on life. Insurance is good enough to be able to run around...I have enough faith this yota will take me to where I need and back.


it's too late....no stopping it...or is there?

That sucks, I have brothers that live in states that have to get inspected, but here in good old kansas, you can tag anything, ANYTHING. No bumpers, no fenders, no mufflers, no cats, nothing matters as long as it has two headlight and two tail lights and looks kind of like a car.

This is what I am wondering.

My safety expires next February. Should I just get it inspected after I get my recon? My recon is scheduled for next week Monday and I am trying to pass it legit.

If you have recon or your truck/car isn't illegal in any way this new safety check thing is nothing to worry about then. My trucks safety expires in november but I'm gonna renew in october then deal with the new law next year. Only thing wrong with mine is the tint on my front windows. Hopefully there will be a way to cheat the system. As they saw laws are made to be broken and this is defiantly one of them to try.

as long as you pass recon and stay inside the rules, the picture they take will probably just be a profile of the car to match up just by glancing.

if you fail, then they take more pictures...

i'm curious how this will play out. Still see tons of lifted trucks with wide tires without recon.
