The New Year is upon us and so is the full force of the California Highway Patrol as stated in their latest press release:

"The CHP will observe the New Year with a Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP) from 6:01 p.m. on Friday, December 28, 2018, to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, January 1, 2019. All available personnel will be on duty. The CHP will focus on impaired drivers, but officers will also watch for distracted driving, speeding, and seat belt violations, as well as motorists in need of assistance."

According to the CHP, during 2017 New Year’s MEP, 40 people died in collisions on California roads with more than two-thirds of those victims not wearing seatbelts. Please be safe on the roads this Holiday and remember to buckle up and DON'T drink and drive!
