California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers and police vehicles have long been considered the top enforcement officers on the road.
But with new technology and increasing citizen demand, CHP officers are seeing an uptick in traffic accidents, resulting in injuries and fatalities.
The California Highway Administration (CHA) is now providing a list of California highway sign regulations, along with tips on how to navigate through the state and how to avoid being injured while driving.
According to the CHA, signs should be installed in a manner that prevents the driver from hitting the other driver.
The signs should also be properly aligned and not be on top of other traffic signs or in front of other vehicles.
“This is a state-wide list of state and federal sign regulations that we have, so if you’re driving down the highway, you need to know about it,” said CHA spokesman Ryan Lissner.
“We’re not in a rush to put signs on every road.
We just want to make sure you’re following the rules, and that if you do, you’re OK.
We also want to remind drivers to be safe when using our state highways.
We’re going to continue to monitor the situation and provide our resources as necessary.”
