I wonder if Hawaii has that law because in the past the police had been abused by prankster passengers who hid when passing them, then popped up when they were stopped. A lot of time, when a "stupid" law got in the book, there were some sad reasons behind it.

I was once in an HOV lane with my child in a car seat. When the cop caught up with me, he saw that and waved me on.
