REDDING, Calif. — California Highway Patrol will be stepping up patrols on I-5 through Siskiyou and Shasta counties on Friday, part of an effort to cut down on serious crashes through the region.

CHP's Northern Division said that it will be conducting a "Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor" enforcement campaign focusing on the freeway corridor in those two counties.

The agency cited data from 2018 and 2019, when 1,042 crashes occurred on I-5 in Siskiyou and Shasta counties. Those crashes resulted in 430 injuries and 13 deaths.

"The primary causes for most of the injury and fatal crashes were determined to be the following: speed, reckless driving, unsafe lane change, unsafe turning movement, following too close, distracted driving, and driving under the influence, with increased injuries and deaths from occupant restraint violations," CHP said.

The California Highway Patrol said that its mission is to provide the "highest level" of safety, service, and security to Californians — including the prevention of deaths, injuries, and property damage that arise from crashes.

“The I-5 corridor within Northern Division represents a large portion of where traffic crashes are occurring,” said Northern Division Chief Greg Baarts. “Increased visibility, aggressive enforcement, and public education within the areas along this corridor will contribute to increased safety for motorists traveling on I-5.”

CHP said that it will target this area of I-5 with increased traffic safety operations to educate or deliver enforcement to drivers who violate traffic laws.

"The CHP reminds motorists 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," the agency said.
