KPD sets up weekly sobriety checkpoints

LIHU‘E — This holiday season, the Kaua‘i Police Department is stepping up traffic enforcement around the island.

There will be an increased police presence now through January 2022 on Kaua‘i roadways, the department announced last week. This will include weekly sobriety checkpoints during evening hours at various locations around the island.

Police will also be monitoring speeding, seat-belt usage and the use of cell phones while driving.

“The holidays can be stressful, which means people get distracted and pay less attention to the road,” said KPD’s Jay Scribner, acting lieutenant in the Patrol Services Bureau’s Traffic Safety Section.

“They can also become more aggressive with their driving,” he said. “We want to help mitigate these things and make sure everyone arrives to their destination safely.”
