That’s the ticket

The enforcement was part of Operation SPEED, which continues through Saturday on major state highways. Danley and traffic officer Lawrence Becraft were positioned within sight of a 45-mph speed limit sign near Haleakala Highway and the turnoff to Old Haleakala Highway. Even with some oncoming drivers flashing lights to warn of the traffic enforcement, the officers ticketed several drivers at speeds of 69, 66 and 64 mph. While Danley and Becraft did enforcement on Haleakala Highway, fellow traffic officer Gregg Rowe ticketed speeding drivers on Honoapiilani Highway in Maalaea on Monday morning.
