Oahu fireworks complaints down 31 percent

    Firecrackers go on sale today through New Year’s Eve at local retailers and may be set off between 9 p.m. New Year’s Eve and 1 a.m. New Year's Day. Firecrackers were on display at Don Quijote last year, the first year of the ban on fireworks.

The number of fireworks-related complaints received by the Honolulu Police Department this New Year’s holiday period was 31 percent less than the previous year.

HPD said it received 593 fireworks-related complaints between Dec. 26 and Jan. 2, down from the 854 complaints received a year ago. Officers issued 80 citations for fireworks this year, and arrested one adult and one juvenile, HPD said.

This is the fourth consecutive year complaints have gone down, from a high of 1,840 in 2009.
