                         ABOUT ZACHARY MANAGO

On December 17, 2010 one of Hawai‘i’s own, Zachary Manago, was killed by a hit and run drunk driver on Kamehameha Highway near Wahiawā while riding his bicycle. Zach was an 18-year-old baseball pitching ace from Moanalua High School, due to start his college career at Hawai‘i Pacific University in the Spring. Zach and his friends loved cycling for fun, exercise, and as commuters.
From the road, he saw first hand the challenges cyclists have sharing the roads with motorists and the need for more bike infrastructure and bike lanes.

Zach’s Vision for Safe Streets: Zach’s last major research paper as a student at Hawai‘i Pacific University, written a few weeks before his death, was titled “Should There Be More Bicycle Lanes in the State of Hawai‘i”. The paper asserts the need for more bicycle lanes in Hawaiʻi to make roads safer for people of all ages and abilities riding bicycles , reduce traffic fatalities and injuries, and reduce pollution. HBL continues to push towards Zach’s Vision through our advocacy work.
