Redwood City To Benefit From Additional CHP Attention

Posted on

Drivers in the vicinity of Redwood City should be on their best behavior on the road in the coming weeks and months.  That means that speed should be kept low, aggressive driving ought to be avoided, drunkenness has no place at the wheel, and cellphones and other distractions must be put away during a commute.

Not only can doing these things help to dramatically improve safety, but they’ll also be able to keep you on the right side of the law.  A new report relates the news that the California Highway Patrol will be altering their strategies in the Redwood City patrol range in a bid to cut down on traffic accidents and get drivers to be more aware of their actions.

A motorcycle enforcement unit is being put in place to address the needs of the local community.  Citations will be issued to those drivers who insist on executing errant maneuvers not conducive to safety, but representatives of the agency stress that this isn’t just about collecting traffic tickets.  Rather, they want persons driving through the area to understand the vital importance of safety on the road.

To that end, you can expect to see officers with the CHP to patrol local neighborhoods.  They’ll also be on hand near schools to ensure the safety of children as they head to and from class.
