August is Drive Aloha Month!
August is designated as Drive Aloha Month with public/private school and university students returning to class mid-August.
Approximately 175,000 public school students are scheduled to begin instruction in mid-August, with an additional 52,000 university, college, and private school students begin their fall semesters later this month.
Statewide traffic fatalities are slightly down (50 deaths at the end of July compared to 66 at the same time last year) because of less vehicles on the road during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, drivers need to be mindful with students walking or biking to and from school starting this month.
