DUI checkpoint begins Wednesday

Police traffic officers will be joined by Mothers Against Drunk Driving volunteers and friends and family members of Hannah Brown on Wednesday for the third annual checkpoint in memory of the 19-year-old who was killed in a collision caused by a drunken driver.

The Hannah Brown Memorial Impaired Driving Awareness Checkpoint will be held after a kickoff gathering in front of the Wailuku Police Station.

The event “is an ‘out of the box’ approach to changing the mindset of people who drive impaired on drugs and/or alcohol,” said police traffic commander Lt. William Hankins.

“All impaired driving fatalities are preventable,” he said. “Do something, take care of your loved ones and help us prevent any more senseless deaths on our highways.”
