More than half of Hawaii's traffic fatalities during the holidays are due to alcohol, speeding or both. Celebrations with family and friends also mean a higher rate of alcohol impaired driving. Considering the additional hazards of the holidays also being Hawaii's rainy season and with increased traffic on the roads there is a higher likelihood of having more accidents during the holidays than any other time of the year.
The holidays should be a time of celebration, but those who are planning to be on the road should use caution and judgment. If you are planning to drink at a party or gathering, please consider appointing a designated driver or make alternate plans to call a taxi.
