Hawaiʻi Island police officers will conduct islandwide DUI checkpoints throughout the holiday season. The effort is part of a national and statewide campaign called “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” The campaign starts today (December 13) and runs through January 1.
Sergeant Robert Pauole, head of the Traffic Services Section, said police will also conduct projects to curb underage drinking in public areas and parks.
To help bring awareness to the campaign, the Police Department’s Traffic Services Section plans a sign-waving event on Kamehameha Avenue in Hilo from 3:30-4:30 p.m. next Friday (December 20). Volunteers are encouraged to participate. For more information on the sign-waving event, you may call Traffic Safety Coordinator Dieter Blattler at 961-2226.
The Hawaiʻi Police Department wishes everyone a happy and safe holiday season.
