Media Release

In Hawaiʻi, aggressive driving is a major concern that threatens the safety of many travelers on the roadway. 

A recent AAA Foundation survey showed that 9 out of 10 drivers believed that aggressive driving was a “somewhat” or “very serious” threat to their safety.  The same survey showed that many drivers admitted to engaging in aggressive driving themselves.  Some of what these driving behaviors consist of are excessive speeding, reckless overtaking, tail gating, and failing to obey traffic signs and signals. 

Intentionally driving with disregard for other people or property is aggressive driving and in Hawaiʻi it likely would be defined as “Reckless Driving” which is against the law. 

This weekend, the Hawaiʻi Police Department will have officers patrolling throughout the island looking for these kinds of drivers.  Do your part and don’t be one of them, drive with Aloha for all people.
