Message in crosswalks prompts double takes

Paint lines have been added to spell out, "Aloha" in some Oahu crosswalks, a tweak first spotted around Christmas, according to Yahoo Screen.

Says resident Ken Middleton, "we started seeing people disrupting traffic, out in the middle of the street with cameras."



Ross Sassamura of the Department of Facility Maintenance says it's vandalism, and has to go. The markings are "a national standard and any deviation... creates the potential for drivers not recognizing that is a crosswalk," according to Yahoo Screen.
