Maui police traffic officers issued 320 traffic citations, most of them for speeding, during 10-day "Operation Safe Drive," aimed at reducing the number of traffic collisions and limiting injuries when crashes occur.
Officers also made 17 arrests during the operation from Oct. 22 to 31.
The enforcement focused on speeding, seat belt and distracted driver laws, primarily on highways and in school zones.
The citations included 165 tickets for speeding, 28 for seat belt violations and 58 for cellphone violations.
So far this year, police traffic officers have investigated 18 fatal or near-fatal motor vehicle collisions that led to the deaths of 20 people.
"We have repeatedly seen speed, alcohol/drug impairment or the lack of seat belt use as a contributing factor in the majority of the severe collisions that we investigate," according to a news release from the Traffic Section. "We urge all drivers to remember to buckle up, slow down and use a hands-free device with your cellphone.
"We urge all drivers to continue to be aware of the dangers posed by speeding, distracted driving and being unsecured in a vehicle."
Officers will continue to conduct traffic enforcement throughout the year.
