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.
