Over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, Honolulu police arrested 41 drivers for drunken driving and four for drug-impaired driving at checkpoints.

Police manning 37 checkpoints also issued 1,042 citations for various offenses, including driving without a license and without insurance, racing, excessive speeding and reckless driving. They also made an arrest for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, an arrest on felony drug charges and another for a $50,000 felony warrant.

Police will continue with the checkpoints during this graduation season.

If they really cared about getting drunk drivers off the streets then they should be doing this EVERY night.

Check back in 3 months as to what happened with all these citations with regard to the penalties they DIDN'T get. Example: Those who were caught without insurance will show up at court with proof of insurance that they bought AFTER their citation and the court will simply dismiss their charge. THEN they will promptly stop paying premium and just get cancelled again BECAUSE there IS NO penalty for getting caught at the time. Follow the citations. Spreadsheet the results.

How many felonies remain unsolved while hpd's attention was blocking roadways and harassing the overwhelming percent of people who are innocent of any wrongdoings? Or how many drunk drivers were out on the highway driving unsafely yet unhampered by these 37 checkpoints?
