HONOLULU (KHON2) — Residents are also urged drive responsibly this holiday weekend.
Honolulu police say officers will be cracking down.
HPD is currently holding sign-waving events across the island.
Their message is there are no excuses.
That includes not drinking and driving, not speeding, and not being distracted while driving.
“The big takeaway for this weekend is it’s, our hospitals are already taxed enough as it is,” said Capt. James Slayter, HPD Traffic Division. “With all the other mess that’s going on, let’s not compound the problem with more senseless and preventable collisions.”
