HONOLULU -

Honolulu police are letting the public know it will be setting up DUI checkpoints at unannounced times and locations from Thursday, May 1, through Monday, June 30, 2014, including, but not limited to, the Memorial Day and King Kamehameha Day holidays.

The checkpoints are part of the department's ongoing effort to reduce traffic injuries and deaths.  The HPD is reminding the public not to drink and drive and that 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 October 2013 and will continue to do so through September 2014 as part of the federal "52/12" sobriety checkpoint program.
