The holiday season is a time for giving and cheer, but it can also be a deadly time on our roadways. Honolulu police officers will be setting up impaired driver checkpoints at unannounced times and locations from November 1 to December 31, 2022 as part of the department’s ongoing efforts to reduce the number of traffic injuries and deaths.
The legal drinking age is 21. Promoting intoxicating liquor to a person under the age of 21 is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one-year imprisonment.
Honolulu police officers have been conducting impaired driver checkpoints every week from September 2022 and will continue to do so through September 2023 as part of the federal “52/12” sobriety checkpoint program.
