Honolulu police officers, along with volunteers, joined forces with local Downtown businesses to help keep Oahu streets safe.
The rally kicked off the fourth annual “Project Save Our Streets” event, which is designed to promote traffic safety.
Last year, Oahu saw 57 traffic fatalities, 19 of which involved pedestrians, and 17 of those pedestrians were not in a crosswalk.
“So what we want to do is tell our pedestrians to pay attention when they’re crossing the street, cross in a crosswalk if possible. And last, but not least, to stay off the electronic devices,” Honolulu Police Department Chief Louis Kealoha said.
Chief Kealoha also reminds drivers to not drive distracted, to not drive drunk, and to slow down.
