The California Highway Patrol’s Northern Division, which has jurisdiction over the major transportation corridor United States 101 in Northern California, recently conducted a Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor, or PCF, enforcement campaign.

The enhanced enforcement detail took place from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20.

During that time, CHP – Northern Division focused enforcement on the US 101 corridor in Mendocino, Humboldt and Del Norte counties, which includes the Ukiah, Garberville, Humboldt, and Crescent City Area offices. The Northern Division Commercial Enforcement Unit also participated in the campaign.

A total of 138 citations were issued, of which 120 were for unsafe speed.

The remaining citations were issued for distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, unsafe turning, and seatbelt violations.

The area offices also reported issuing 30 verbal or written warnings, and made three arrests, including driving under the influence, drug possession, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Although this enhanced enforcement detail has concluded on US 101, the CHP will conduct additional enhanced enforcement details along the US 101 corridor at various times and locations throughout the year.

The CHP said the public should continue to practice safe driving habits anytime they get behind the wheel.

The agency reminded motorists to follow these basic traffic safety rules: always wear a seat belt, drive at a speed safe for conditions, eliminate distractions while driving and always designate a sober driver.
