The California Highway Patrol plans to execute a “maximum enforcement period” over the Memorial Day weekend in the hopes of ensuring the safety of people living in Kern County.
During this time period, there will be a greater number of cops actively patrolling the streets.
According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 45 persons killed in car accidents across the state over the course of the holiday weekend in 2022.
This figure represents an almost 30 percent rise over the number of fatalities recorded in 2021.
The period of enforcement is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Friday, November 26. It will last until Monday, May 29, at midnight.
