Two months of HPD DUI roadblocks to start this weekend

Starting this weekend, Honolulu police will be setting up impaired driving checkpoints at unnannounced times and locations throughout Oahu.

Checkpoints will be conducted from Saturday through Wednesday, April 30 including, but not limited to, St. Patrick’s Day, Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Day and Easter weekend.

The checkpoints are part of the department’s ongoing effort to reduce traffic injuries and deaths. This latest push is to encourage motorists to stay safe during spring break.

Honolulu police officers have been conducting impaired driver checkpoints every week since October 2013 and will continue to do so through September 2014 as part of the federal “52/12” sobriety checkpoint program.
