The Independence Day Maximum Enforcement Period began at 6 p.m. Friday and continues through 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

All available officers throughout the state will be deployed during the period to focus enforcement on occupant restraints, speed violations, and those driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”

“This is a time for celebration, not tragedy,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “Celebrate this Independence Day by having fun but also by being responsible in the choices you make.

“Designate a sober driver before you head out to celebrate and do your part to make this a safe holiday for everyone on California’s roads,” he added.

Last year during the Independence Day weekend in California, more than 1,300 people were arrested by the CHP for driving under the influence.
