CHP Is Set To Begin Its Christmas MEP

As Californians travel this week, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is set to begin its Christmas Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP). The MEP begins at 6 P.M. on Friday the 21st, and continues through 11:59 P.M. on Tuesday the 25th. The focus of the MEP is speed limit enforcement, but officers will also be watching for any signs of impaired driving. During this period, all available officers will be out on the roadways for enhanced enforcement efforts and assisting motorists wherever needed. 16 people died in collisions in CHP jurisdiction during the 2017 Christmas MEP, of the 12 vehicle occupants who were killed, half were not wearing a seatbelt. Three pedestrians and one motorcyclist were also killed. Statewide, 27 people were killed in collisions. This MEP is intended to further ensure the safety of the motoring public during the holidays.
