CHP Urges A Safe And Sober Holiday

As tens of thousands of Californians prepare to mark Independence Day, the California Highway Patrol reminds everyone to keep safety a top prioriThis year the holiday falls on a Sunday, so for many people it will be a three-day weekend full of celebration and good times.

Fourth of July weekend is a Maximum Enforcement Period for the CHP.

All available officers will be out on the road during the weekend looking for motorists who are a danger to themselves and others on our state’s highways.

The MEP begins at 6:01 p.m. on Friday July 2, and continues through midnight on Monday, July 5.

Last year 24 persons were killed statewide during the Fourth of July weekend, and 80 percent of the vehicle occupants killed in CHPO jurisdiction were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

In addition, CHP officers made 1,239 arrests for driving under the influence during that same period.

“The CHP wants your holiday memories to be happy ones,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.  “Please be sure to take a few simple precautions to ensure that your friends and family have a safe Fourth of July.”

 

  • Don’t drink and drive.  If your Independence Day celebration includes drinking alcohol, arrange for a friend or family member who will not be drinking to be the “Designated Driver.”
  • Always wear your seat belt.  Make sure all passengers, adults and children, are also buckled up, even on short trips.
  • Watch your speed.  Stay at or below the limit, depending on the road conditions.
  • Plan ahead if you will drive long distances.  Add extra time to your trip so you won’t feel rushed and take a break every hour or so to get refreshed.
