The County Board of Supervisors on Oct. 6 approved a contract with the California Highway Patrol to provide uniformed personnel with patrol vehicles for traffic enforcement throughout unincorporated areas, on an as needed basis. “This is a wise use of taxpayer dollars to increase traffic safety enforcement in unincorporated areas,” Supervisor Lovingood said. The Supervisor has advocated for increased road safety measures and enforcement, including in Spring Valley Lake. County officials and the CHP have had multiple discussions regarding an increase in traffic within the County’s unincorporated areas and the implementation of effective safety measures. The CHP has traffic enforcement jurisdiction in unincorporated areas. The contract will continue through October 2022.
