CHP reports enforcement campaign results

The California Highway Patrol’s Northern Division having jurisdiction over the major transportation Highway 395 corridor throughout Northern California, conducted a Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor Enforcement Campaign.

The enhanced enforcement detail took place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021.

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 Commercial Enforcement Unit. A total of 42 citations were issued, of which 40 were for unsafe speed. The area offices also reported issuing 24 verbal or written warnings and one arrest.

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
  • Always designate a sober driver
