CHP joins holiday ‘lifesaving challenge’ on area’s highways
Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013 — The California Highway Patrol is joining several other state highway patrol agencies across the nation to participate in two separate traffic safety challenges during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Keeping in line with the CHP's mission of saving lives, both campaigns have set a goal of zero fatalities during the five-day period, a mission which might prove impossible.
The first of two campaigns is called the "Interstate 5 Challenge." The five-day lifesaving traffic safety effort is a joint endeavor between the CHP, Oregon State Police and the Washington State Patrol. The focus throughout the "Arrive Alive on I-5" campaign will be on seat belt usage, driving under the influence, speed and aggressive driving.
