CHP conducting speed enforcement along freeway

The California Highway Patrol is conducting special speed enforcement patrols along the Golden Center Freeway.

Officer Jeff Pingree of the Grass Valley office said that officers will be patrolling the freeway through Grass Valley and Nevada City, through the stretch that includes the divided highway.

Pingree said there is no set time or day that extra patrols will be in force, but advised motorists to be aware of their speed, as well as other possible violations.

Pingree said the particular stretch of freeway is also prone to have people who don’t wear their seat belts.

Pingree said the increased effort will go on indefinitely.
