The California Highway Patrol (CHP) Arrowhead Regional Headquarters located in Running Springs, California is announcing the Traffic Safety Awareness Campaign.

Saving Lives is the core mission of the California Highway Patrol (CHP).  In order to accomplish this mission, the CHP Arrowhead Area office will use a federal grant to conduct a regional traffic safety campaign in San Bernardino County.  The 12-month project starts October 1, 2017, and ends September 30, 2018. 

The Arrowhead Area will deploy officers on enhanced enforcement on Interstates 5, 405, and 605; State Routes 22, 39, and 91; and San Bernardino County roadways where CHP Arrowhead Area has jurisdiction, such as Lake Drive, Lake Gregory Drive, and North Bay Road.  In addition to enhanced enforcement, this traffic safety effort will also include a community-based task force and public awareness and education campaign to reinforce key traffic safety messages.  

“This grant will help keep the momentum from past education and enforcement campaigns and save lives,” said CHP Lieutenant Anthony Coronado, commander of the Arrowhead Area office.  “With a proactive approach to make our roadways safer, we can continue to reduce the number of collisions occurring in San Bernardino County.”  

According to the California Highway Patrol Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, there were 401 people killed and injured in 274 traffic collisions on state routes and highways patrolled by the CHP Arrowhead Area office between October 1, 2014, and September 30, 2015. 

The top primary collision factors were unsafe speed, improper turning, impaired driving, automobile right-of-way, and wrong side of road violations.
