California Highway Patrol Maximum Enforcement Period on Labor Day Weekend 2021.
Many Californians are looking forward to a three-day weekend this year for Labor Day Weekend 2021.
Even though people are eager to travel and get together with family and friends, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is urging motorists to slow down and enjoy the holiday.
To help ensure the safety of motorists throughout the holiday, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will conduct a Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP).
Labor Day Weekend Maximum Enforcement Dates and Times
Friday September 3 2021: Starts at 6:01pm thru Monday September 6 2021 at 11:59pm
To help keep motorists safe, officers will focus on removing impaired drivers from the road.
Impairment can be caused by more than just alcohol – it also comes from cannabis, illicit drugs, and prescription drugs, or a combination of any of these.
Traffic safety efforts by the CHP during the 2020 Labor Day MEP resulted in more than 900 arrests for driving under the influence. Sadly, 46 people died in crashes throughout California that weekend – many of whom were not wearing a seat belt.

The public can help by calling 9-1-1 if they suspect an impaired driver.
Callers should be prepared to give the vehicle’s description, location, license plate number, and direction of travel.
The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.
