Police to conduct DUI checkpoints

Starting today and continuing through the Fourth of July weekend, police traffic officers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols at various locations to target impaired driving.

Police will “take a zero-tolerance approach to impaired driving,” according to a Maui Police Department news release.

“Our goal is to promote voluntary compliance with all traffic laws and reduce motor vehicle crashes on our roadways,” police said.

Police said people can help by planning a safe way home before they start celebrating, including by designating a sober driver to hold vehicle keys before anyone starts drinking.

Instead of driving, those who have been drinking can use a car service, take a taxi or call a sober friend or family member to get home safely, police said.

Anyone who sees an impaired driver on the road is asked to call MPD to report it, police said.
