CHP Labor Day Weekend Safety Announcement

I’m Ed Smith, a Loomis Personal Injury Lawyer. The California Highway Patrol is urging Californians to take extra safety precautions during the Labor Day holiday weekend. Officers from CHP will be enforcing drug and alcohol checks on drivers to ensure the safety of other drivers and pedestrians on the roadways during the holiday weekend.

Why? 

All California Highway Patrol officers will be working the Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP) for Labor Day weekend. Authorities will be working from Friday evening at 6:01 pm to Monday night at 11:59 pm. Officers from CHP and experts that specialize in drug recognition will be patrolling and monitoring for drivers that are under the influence of drugs and alcohol. In addition, authorities will also be helping drivers that require assistance throughout the Labor Day weekend.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign

The annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign was created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians on public roadways. The mission of the campaign is to have a zero tolerance policy for drivers that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In addition, the campaign also works to assist in the reduction of injuries and fatal vehicular collisions.

CHP Public Safety Announcement

Officers from the California Highway Patrol reported 32 fatalities and conducted arrests totaling more than 1,200 for individuals that were driving under the influence during Labor Day weekend of 2015. Approximately seven of the individuals that passed away during Labor Day weekend of 2015 were not utilizing a seat belt at the time of their accidents. Officers from CHP are also encouraging anyone to contact 9-1-1 if there is a driver on the roadway that may be driving under the influence. Authorities advise anyone that is calling 9-1-1 to report a possible impaired driver to have a vehicle description, license plate number, location and the direction of the vehicle driving on the roadway. Authorities from CHP also state that a phone call can save the life of someone else.
