Highway Patrol officers have started patrolling three East Bay and
South Bay highways to monitor commercial truckers who drive recklessly,
the San Jose Mercury News reported.
by a $1.1 million federal grant, the CHP launched a yearlong campaign
that targets commercial drivers who speed, drive under the influence
of alcohol or drugs and commit other violations. The CHP will be
looking particularly for truckers who follow too close, make unsafe
lane changes and fail to stop for signs and signals.
the Bay Area, CHP officers will focus on truckers who drive on Interstate
580 in eastern Alameda County, Interstate 80 from the Bay Bridge
through Solano County and the full length of Interstate 880.
