TehachaPod Talks with CHP About Increased Enforcement

TehachaPod – CHP – Mojave Office to Step Up Enforcement Season 2, Episode 108

California Highway Patrol Officer Aaron Maurer from the Mojave Station comes into TehachaPod to talk about the renewed focus on speeders and seatbelt enforcement in East Kern County. Officer Maurer talks about an increase in fatal car accidents in our area that can be attributed to unsafe speeds and lack of wearing seatbelts. 

He says these accidents are involving local residents who are getting complacent while driving and do some unsafe things. Maurer says if drivers could show a little more patience when driving and give themselves a few extra minutes it would make it safer for everyone. We also talk to him about driving near school busses, emergency vehicles, winter driving, child car seat restraining devices, distracted driving, and other programs the CHP sponsors. 

The award winning TehachaPod is available on all podcasting platforms free of charge and is the official podcast for the City of Tehachapi. TehachaPod features Greg Garrett (City Manager), Corey Costelloe (Economic Development Coordinator) & Key Budge (Community Engagement Specialist) as the hosts.
