According to the local news, the California Highway Patrol Santa Cruz division won two very prestigious awards. Local troopers say that the fact Santa Cruz is seeing a decreasing number of deaths related to car accidents just proves that they’re doing something right.
The California Highway Patrol spokesperson says that the tough law enforcement combined with educational programs have cut the numbers of fatalities in the region by 69 percent since the year of 2008.
Local enforcement focus on intoxicated drivers while officers throughout Santa Cruz deliver traffic safety education to all residents in an effective way. According to the local troopers, education is the key to safer roads and better results.
All departments linked to the California Highway Patrol from the entire state are judged by a panel of police chiefs on each agency’s achievements on training and enforcement. The Santa Cruz agency won in its class for the great number of lives they helped to save in the past year.
As a Los Angeles car accident lawyer I’m extremely happy to learn that so many troopers in our great state are dedicated to saving the lives of countless drivers and that educations combined with a strict enforcement have paid off in Santa Cruz.
