Drive Aloha



Mahalo for your interest in Drive Aloha, DTRIC’s public safety campaign.

What does it mean to Drive Aloha? Some people say that it is a friendly wave of gratitude when someone lets you enter a lane or make a turn. Others say that it is a state of mind that reminds us to apply the Golden Rule while driving.

At DTRIC, we believe in the Drive Aloha message of safe, responsible and courteous driving – because we want everyone in our community to remain safe while on the road.

As Executive Chairman and CEO of DTRIC Insurance, I believe whole-heartedly that together, we can make Hawaii’s roads safer if we all Drive Aloha!
