CHP to deploy a motorcycle safety enforcement operation in Humboldt area

ARCATA, Calif. — In an effort to reduce the number of motorcycle crashes, Humboldt Area will deploy additional officers, on various roads throughout the area, on May 17.

Officers will look for violations by both motorcycle riders and drivers that make roads dangerous for other traffic, including unsafe speed, following too closely, unsafe lane changes and improper turning.

Motorcycle-involved crashes in California continue to be a major concern for the California Highway Patrol.

From January 2021 through December 2021, provisional statistical data revealed there were 19 injury crashes involving motorcycles and 3 fatal crashes involving motorcycles in the CHP Humboldt jurisdiction.

Funding for these operations is provided by a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Titled “Get Educated and Ride Safe (GEARS) V, the grant funding assists the CHP in reducing deadly and serious injury crashes involving motorcycles,

The Humboldt Area will continue to deploy additional enforcement efforts through Sept. 30.
