CHP to Deploy a Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation in Solano areaMay 20, 2022 12:00AM ● By CHP News Release
FAIRFIELD, CA (MPG) - Whether you drive on a scenic highway or a congested freeway, motorcycles are all around.
As such, motorcycle-involved crashes in California continue to be a major concern for the California Highway Patrol (CHP). From January 2020 through December 2020, provisional statistical data revealed there were 38 injury crashes involving motorcycles and 3 fatal crashes involving motorcycles in the CHP Solano Area’s jurisdiction.
In an effort to reduce the number of motorcycle incidents or crashes resulting from unsafe speed, following too closely, unsafe lane changes, improper turning, and other violations by both motorcyclists and other drivers, the CHP, Solano Area will deploy additional officers on Interstate 80. The operation commenced on May 1, 2022.
To assist the CHP in this traffic safety effort, the Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has awarded a grant titled “Get Educated and Ride Safe IV.” With the grant-funding, the Solano Area will continue to deploy additional enforcement efforts through September 30, 2022.
