CHP begins maximum enforcement period on local roadways

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - With the long Fourth of July holiday weekend upon us, the CHP will be out in full force cracking down on drivers that are breaking the law and putting other people's lives in danger.

"Those are the three violations we're going to be looking at: speed, DUI's and seat belts because those are the three things that cause every single fatality," Brian Pennings of the California Highway Patrol said.

Starting at 6 p.m. Friday night and running through Monday night at midnight, the CHP's maximum enforcement period will be in effect.

That means extra officers will be patrolling local freeways to make sure drivers are safe and observing the law.
