Honolulu police plan to set up DUI checkpoints in November and December

The Honolulu Police Department will set up impaired driver checkpoints at undisclosed times and locations on Oahu from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.

The checkpoints are part of the department’s ongoing efforts to reduce the number of traffic-related injuries and deaths.

As the holiday season approaches, police remind the public not to drink and drive and that the legal drinking age is 21. Promoting intoxicating liquor to a person under 21 is considered a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

Police have been conducting impaired driving checkpoints every week since September and will continue to do so through September 2021 as part of the federal “52/12” sobriety checkpoint program.
