Program: Distracted Driving
California Highway Patrol- Officer Rodney Fits
All CHP officers start in West Sacramento at the academy.  They are then sent to different places.  The Yolo County CHP is anywhere from Clarksburg to Dunnigan.  There are 36 officers, 4 sergeants and 1 captain.  There are  4 officers per shift and 3 shifts are run.  
 
Distracted Driving is anything that takes your mind or sight from concentrating on driving.  Is is okay to use a cell phone that is mounted or connected to the audio in the car.  The law says you can you can tap it once or swipe it once.  The fine for cell phone use other than described starts at $20 for the first offense and is not considered a moving violation at this time.  As of July of 2021 vehicle code will change.  The second stop within 36 months, a point will be added to the driving record.  The CHP don’t have the stats or the data to prove what they know is happening.  They know people are driving distracted primarily because of the cell phone.
 
Be an example, share the CHP’s message “just drive”
 
Next meeting: going dark for 2 weeks, or until further notice
