Media Release

Community Police Officers from the Hawai’i Police Department are continuing their sign-waving awareness project with the Hawaiian Beaches Action Team to educate the public about the dangers of both speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Sign wavers have been positioned next to a crashed car at various locations in the Puna District throughout the holiday season. The next sign waving is scheduled for Wednesday, December 9, from 3 to 5 p.m. in front of Pāhoa High School.

Participants hope the friendly reminder and the smashed vehicle will have a sobering effect on motorists about the risks of unsafe driving. Many people don’t realize that it takes only two-to-three drinks to exceed Hawai’i’s legal alcohol limit of 0.08 percent.

Anyone interested in participating in the sign waving project may call Community Police Officer Sandor Finkey at 966-5835.
