CHP Will Deploy Extra Officers To Focus On Motorcycle Safety

Riding a motorcycle carries plenty of inherent dangers which are compounded by those who ride recklessly. The CHP will deploy additional officers this Memorial Day Monday on Highway 299 in Shasta County, specifically to look for violations by motorcyclists, including unsafe speed, tailgating, unsafe lane changes and improper turning. In 2021 the Redding area jurisdiction of the CHP had 41 motorcycle crashes resulting in injury and one fatality.
