HPD continues to set up DUI checkpoints through Labor Day

Honolulu police officers continue to be on the lookout for drunk and impaired drivers, especially over Labor Day weekend.

The Honolulu Police Dept. is setting up DUI checkpoints at unannounced times and locations through Friday, October 31.

The checkpoints are part of the department’s ongoing effort to reduce traffic injuries and deaths.

HPD is reminding the public not to drink and drive and that the legal drinking age is 21.

Promoting intoxicating liquor to a person under the age of 21 is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one-year imprisonment.

Honolulu police officers have been conducting impaired driver checkpoints every week as part of the federal “52/12” sobriety checkpoint program.
