LOS ANGELES (CNS) – No deaths on Interstate 10 in California is the public safety goal set this Labor Day weekend by the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP will have all available officers on duty over the long weekend, with a four-day, maximum enforcement period starting at 6 p.m. Friday and ending 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
CHP Officer Rick Quintero said his colleagues will be paying special attention to Interstate 10 from Santa Monica to the Arizona state line.
“The purpose of the campaign is to reduce the number of collisions and fatalities across Interstate 10,” Quintero said.
“We want people to slow down, to not drink and drive and to be vigilant,” he said. “We want to educate drivers to the dangers out there on the road and to let them know we will be out in force this Labor Day weekend to enforce the law and cite them if they break the law.”
Interstate 10 stretches from Santa Monica to Jacksonville, Fla., and seven other law enforcement agencies along the freeway are participating in what they are calling the “I-10 Challenge.”
