CHP releases results of June 9 focus on Highway 395

The California Highway Patrol’s Northern Division conducted a Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor (PCF) Enforcement Campaign that resulted in the issuing of 45 citations last week.

The enhanced enforcement detail took place from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9.

During that time, CHP – Northern Division focused enforcement on the Highway 395 corridor in Modoc, Lassen, and Sierra counties, which includes the Alturas, Susanville, and Quincy Area Offices, and Northern Division Air Operations. A total of 45 citations were issued, of which 33 were for unsafe speed. The remaining citations were issued for distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, unsafe turning and seat belt violations. The area offices also reported issuing 54 verbal or written warnings.

Although this enhanced enforcement detail has concluded on Highway 395, the CHP will conduct additional enhanced enforcement details along the highway 395 corridor at various times and locations throughout the year. The public should continue to practice safe driving habits anytime they get behind the wheel. The CHP reminds motorists to follow these basic traffic safety rules: Always wear a seat belt, drive at a speed safe for conditions, eliminate distractions while driving and always designate a sober driver.
