California Highway Patrol warns drivers against high speeds
SAN DIEGO, CA – Fox 5 San Diego reports that the California Highway Patrol is warning California drivers against speeding. The CHP says that freeways are much emptier now with stay-at-home orders, and some drivers are using that as an excuse to drive at high speeds.
On Wednesday, officers took to Interstate 5 to track speeding drivers. In a four-hour window, just in Oceanside alone, officers pulled over 30 drivers all going over 90 mph.
With rain in the forecast, CHP warns that these high speeds could lead to deadly traffic accidents.
