Safe Communities Program

Our Safe Communities Program is committed to reducing the number of senseless deaths and injuries on Hawaii’s roads. We are grateful for the strong partnerships we have with the four county police departments, county and state agencies, and traffic safety advocates in Hawaii. HDOT and our partners pledge to continue to work diligently toward our ultimate goal of zero traffic deaths.
