By Star-Advertiser staff


Honolulu Police issued 313 citations and arrested seven people during stepped-up traffic enforcement on St. Patrick's Day.

Police said the Traffic Division conducted a Project R.A.C.E. (Reduce Accidents and Collisions Everywhere) operation Monday night, increasing traffic and impaired driving enforcement island-wide using roadblocks and roving patrols.

Six of the arrests were for driving under the influence. The other arrest was for driving without a license.

Of the citations, 7 were for excessive speed, 187 for speeding, 31 for hazardous driving, 13 for driving without a license, 11 insurance violations, 4 for using a mobile electronic device while driving, 1 seat belt violation, 1 open container and 57 miscellaneous violations.

You can stand on any street corner and see 4 people using an electron devise while you're waiting for the light to turn green.

If you're primarily looking for drunk drivers, electronic device enforcement is secondary no?

Would help if had additional breakdown of numbers. Locals or tourists, where and when. What were the misc categories? Would it help to put in speed bumps along the Pali and the Likilike :-)?

Seize the vehicles of repeat offenders. The legislature needs to allow that to happen.

The REAL story is HOW these tickets/offenders get handled come court time. The 11 insurance violators will go out and GET insurance (temporarily) just before court and their tickets will be dismissed and they will suffer NO punishment for not having insurance AT THE TIME OF THE TICKET. Judges don't even check when the policy was issued - so they just skate....again....and do it all over.....again. And this is a preview of how people will handle their "mandated" O'bamacare too.
