Mar. 12. – Mar. 18, 2018 La Mirada Crime Summary

Driving Safety Tips from CHP
As weather forecasters warn of impending rain and snow headed for the state, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is preparing motorists by offering safe driving tips.

To help drivers negotiate slick conditions while traveling through rain or snow, the CHP offers the following safety tips:

• Check to see that the windshield wipers are in good condition. Also, be sure the vehicle’s headlights are on anytime you have your windshield wipers on continuously, it’s the law.
• Reduce your speed and allow more time for your journey. The maximum posted speed limit may not apply to the wet or icy road conditions.
• If you encounter fog, again, slow down. Drive with your lights on low beam. Don’t stop on a highway, unless it’s an emergency. And keep a close watch on your speed.

The CHP urges you to check road conditions often. The best way to do this is to call the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Road Conditions Hotline: 1-800-427-ROAD (1-800-427-7623).

In addition to overcoming weather-related obstacles, remember to buckle up, slow down and never drink and drive.
