Community Traffic Awareness Program slows traffic in Pearl City

Jul 6, 2010 | PC Community


Officer Kathleen Capellas from the Pearl City Police Station-Community Policing Team and a group of volunteers, took to the streets on Tuesday to help bring awareness to the problem of speeding in Pearl City.

Speeding and the public's safety  is a major concern of Pearl City residents and HPD. Officer Capellas coordinates community sign waving efforts through the Community Traffic Awareness Program (CTAP).

From 5-6pm on Tuesday, volunteers were successful in slowing down traffic and bringing awareness to the community to drive safely. Hopefully we can have safe PC streets 24/7.

Mahalo to all the volunteers and friendly waves from motorists supporting the Community Traffic Awareness Program. Also Mahalo to Keila Wong and her mom and aunty for supplying the volunteers with ice cold bottled water.
