CHiPs On The Lookout For Traffic Violators.
(Los Angeles, CA) — The California Highway Patrol’s end-of-year maximum enforcement period continues. Starting Friday night at 6:00 and continuing until late Monday, CHP officers in Los Angeles and Orange counties will look for drunken and drug-impaired drivers, speeders and other traffic violators. Last year’s New Year’s holiday maximum enforcement period led to 495 arrests statewide. Another 29 Californians died in crashes during the same time frame.
