Honolulu City Council Considers Widening Parking Stalls

Shimmying out of tight parking stalls and fretting over dented car parts could soon be a thing of the past.

The Honolulu City Council is considering a proposal that would make parking three inches easier.

The city in 1996 decreased the minimum width for off-street, standard-sized parking stalls to 8 feet 3 inches. And now the council could reverse that ordinance by requiring that the minimum width be increased to 8 feet 6 inches.
