So that others don't repeat my mistake:
We recently left the BI and are now on Kauai. As we drove south from the Kohala Coast to KOA airport I was attentive to both my speed limit and possible speed traps, cops on the side of the road. I had seen a few cops pull over some drivers during our time on the BI. In any event, as you approach KOA from the highway, you make a arching turn into the airport. Obviously, to make the turn you have to reduce your speed from highway speed, which I did.
As you turn into the airport you drive down a low sloping rise. I had my foot on the brake and certainly didn't think I was speeding. Right there, dead ahead was --- a cop car with his laser gun. He motioned to me and pulled me over.
"Do you know how fast you were going?"
Long story short, I was going 44 mph in what had in a few dozen feet gone from a 55 mph zone down to 25 mph. No one else was on the road I had turned onto and it wasn't near the terminal. Just me heading down a hill to the departure terminal in the distance. Its the area right after you turn off the highway. "License and registration" and about ten mins later (tick tock as the flt departure time approaches) the nice local copper handed me a ticket for over $100.
We dropped off our rental car after checking in and, on the bus to the terminal, the driver told us the cop hangs out often there, catching multiple drivers who did the exact same thing I did. As the driver said, "its as if he doesn't have anything better to do all day."
Its a heck of a way to send off tourist who just spent a very large penny on a week on the BI. I call it a classic speed trap. Live and learn . . .
