CHP to be on maximum enforcement through the holidays


California Highway Patrol officers will be on maximum enforcement beginning Nov. 27 and lasting through Dec. 1 in an effort to crack down on drunken and reckless driving over the holidays.

Forty-four people were killed in crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday in California last year, according to a CHP news release. Anyone who sees an impaired driver is asked to call 911.
