VICTORVILLE, California (VVNG.com) – One-day traffic congestion along the I-15 highway conducted by the California Highway Patrol led to 79 stops and 11 drivers who were fined for driving over 100 miles per hour.
Officer Mike Mumford of the Victorville CHP station told VVNG that the saturation happened on Saturday morning and that eight officers and one sergeant were involved.
“Regular shift officers have been assigned details and police officers have been brought in through a grant provided by the Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,” Mumford said.
In just a few hours, 79 execution stops were made. One seat belt allegation and 74 violations were issued, 11 of which were over 100 miles per hour.
Anyone cited for driving over 100 miles per hour will have to appear in court and if found guilty, have two points added to the license, pay hundreds of dollars in fines, and most will have their license suspended for at least 30 days.
Mumford reminds drivers to slow down in construction zones. “We will have the construction of I-15 for years to come, and we have already recorded an increase in traffic collisions in those areas. “Any citation in those areas will be punished twice,” he said.
Mumford said another execution operation is planned for later this month and that the date will not be made public.
