Sobriety checkpoints in effect Sunday

The Hawaii Department of Transportation reminds the public to be safe and sober as they celebrate Super Bowl Sunday.

Police statewide will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and patrolling communities in search for impaired drivers, the department said in a press release.

“We all know that the biggest football game of the year is cause for celebration and fans around the state will probably be celebrating with alcohol,” HDOT Director of Transportation Ford Fuchigami said. “Just remember that, in Hawaii, nearly half of all traffic fatalities are because of alcohol impairment.”
