SACRAMENTO, Calif. — As the summer months make their way towards us, CHP wishes to remind drivers to properly maintain their vehicles.

“We understand the public is eager to get out and travel, but health and safety should remain a priority for everyone on California’s roadways,” CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley said. “Remember, fewer cars and less congested roadways are not an invitation to speed or engage in dangerous behavior behind the wheel.”

As travel increases and restrictions are further modified, summer road trips will look a bit different this year.

CHP recommends to drive sober; maintain your vehicles; program mapping systems before you start to drive; always check highway conditions before getting on the road; wear your seat belt; never leave pets, the elderly or children alone in vehicles and expect road constrictions and plan for delays.
