Maui police increase patrols for Halloween weekend
Large parties on Maui — such as the Lahaina Halloween Party — are canceled, but the Maui Police Department will continue to increase traffic enforcement for the Halloween weekend.
Impaired driving check-points begin Oct. 29 and continue through Sunday night.
The public can expect saturation patrols where there is a noticeable increase in traffic enforcement to include impaired driving checkpoints.
Impaired driving arrests in Maui County have increased by 15% this year alone.
Fatal motor vehicle crashes in Maui increased by 133% in 2021. The majority of fatal crashes were caused by speeding and driving under the influence.
MPD said it will have a zero-tolerance response to impaired driving over the weekend and will arrest any drunk drivers.
Motorists can expect to see patrols, which will include the use of unmarked patrol vehicles.
