Honolulu police were out in force this Memorial Day weekend; working to keep the streets safe.
Over the four nights, officers set up 37 impaired driver checkpoints in all eight patrol districts around Oahu.
45 impaired drivers were arrested: 41 for alcohol, four for drugs and over 1,000 citations were issued for various offenses.
"The idea was with the Memorial Day weekend as a kick off for summer, as well as the kick off for the graduation season, it was important that the public know and the community know that we're going to be out there this summer [and] during the graduation season enforcing the impairment driving laws and making sure there are no fatal or critical crashes," said Maj. Kurt Kendro of the HPD. "We're very happy to report there were no critical or fatal crashes over the weekend."
HPD says it will continue its stepped up impaired driving enforcement and calls it the department's "Project Graduation."
