Increased DUI enforcement for Memorial Day weekend
Big Island police will be stepping up DUI enforcement due to Memorial Day weekend and graduation parties.
Officers will conduct DUI checkpoints and roving patrols Friday through Monday Memorial Day. The effort is part of a national and statewide campaign called “Drunk Driving: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
Driving under the influence of alcohol presents a potential danger to every motorist, passenger and pedestrian the driver encounters. Already this year, local police have made almost 500 DUI arrests, and there have been more than 600 major traffic collisions.
Please do your part to keep our roads safe. Always remember to have a designated sober and licensed driver before you start drinking. If you don’t find one, don’t take a chance — take a taxi.
