Do your plans for the 4th of July weekend involve driving anywhere? If so, be extra careful. This Friday kicks off a CHP maximum enforcement period. From Friday, July 1 through Monday, July 4 extra CHP officers will be on duty, looking for speeding, aggressive, and distracted drivers. They will also be looking to get drivers under the influence off the roads.

“Speed is the number one factor in roadway crashes in California, causing one-third of the traffic-related deaths. Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Speeding not only endangers your life, but the lives of everyone on the roadway,” the CHP Commissioner Amanda Ray said in the CHP news release. “Fill the holiday weekend with celebration and fun activities, not reckless choices that lead to tragedy.”

Don’t want to drive at all this weekend? The weather is going to be perfect for walking or riding a bike. SacRT is also offering free rides on their buses and light rails to the Folsom Rodeo and the Rancho Cordova fireworks show!
