The California Highway Patrol from Oroville, Chico, Red Bluff, and Yuba-Sutter advise the public that Valentine's Day is designated for the Northern 99 Enforcement Project. Maximum CHP deployments will be in these areas in an effort to reduce the number of fatal, injury and property damage collisions on State Route 99.

This campaign focuses on about 100 miles of Highway 99 from Red Bluff and the State Route 99/I-5 interchange in Northern Sacramento, according to a CHP press release.

The campaign emphasizes reducing fatal and injury accidents on SR-99 by aggressively enforcing all accident causing violations, such as speeding and unsafe turning or passing movements. Officers also actively enforce seatbelt and child restraint laws for the drivers who just refuse to buckle up, according to the CHP press release.
