Victorville CHP Captain Michael Stefanoff recently provided our office with an update for the first quarter of 2021.

“My staff remains vigilant in this new year in not only reducing the Mileage Death Rate (MDR) in our communities, but lowering the total overall crash picture by focusing on violations associated with those primary crash factors,” said Captain Stefanoff. “Our enforcement statistics continue to improve, but unfortunately our total crash picture continues to rise as well. This will continue to be our focus in ensuring California continues to be a safe place to work, live and travel.”

First Quarter 2021 (January through March)

  • Total Enforcement Contacts:  4049 (Up 3.08% from the same quarter in 2020)
  • Total Citations Issued:  2752 (Up 2.12% from the same quarter in 2020)
  • Total Motorist Services:  787
  • DUI Arrests:  131 (Up from 90 last quarter)
  • DUI Causing Crashes:  36 (Similar to last quarter)
  • Total Crashes:  400 (Up 19.4 from the same quarter in 2020)
