CHP Receives Speed Enforcement Grant

Speed is the number one cause of traffic collisions, and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has embarked on a statewide campaign to combat fatal and injury collisions caused by speed.  The anti-speed enforcement efforts of the “Focused Attention Towards Enforcing Speed” (FATES) continue through Sept. 30, 2012. Officer David Martinez with the Auburn CHP says the objectives of the grant are to reduce the number of speed-related collisions occurring throughout the state, save lives, and prevent serious injury. 

“That is going to help speed related collisions and this grant money that they’re sending out to us to reinforce the speeds and kind of saturate the roadways to let people know that it’s dangerous and they’re going to be stopped.”

Funding for the FATES project is provided by a grant awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
