The California Highway Patrol’s (CHP) Northern Division and Golden Gate  Division, having jurisdiction over the major transportation corridor of U.S. Highway 101 throughout  northern California, partnered in a Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor (PCF)  Enforcement Campaign.  

The enhanced enforcement detail took place on Thursday, April 8, 2021.  

During the campaign, Area offices within the CHP’s Northern and Golden Gate Divisions  increased enforcement efforts along the U.S. 101 corridor from the Oregon border to the  southern border of Santa Clara County in San Jose. CHP officers issued 597 citations, of which  402 were for unsafe speed, including three citations for exceeding 100 mph. The remaining  citations were issued for distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, unsafe turning, following too  close, and seatbelt violations. The Area offices also reported issuing 102 verbal or written  warnings and five total arrests.  

Although this enhanced enforcement detail has concluded on U.S. 101, the CHP is planning to  conduct additional enhanced enforcement details along the U.S. 101 corridor at various times  and locations throughout the year. The CHP encourages to the public to practice safe driving  habits anytime they get behind the wheel and 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.
