  1. We need more CHP on patrol, everyday i see people tailgating, speeding, dangerous lane changing. Its no surprise the accidents we have on HWY 4

  2. I have yet to see a CHP cruiser anywhere on Hwy 4 from Hillcrest to San Marcos, approaching from either direction. To CHP it’s like that part of the freeway doesn’t exist. There are some really nasty drivers going in both directions at all times.

    • I agree 100%. People don’t understand the laws of physics. What I would like to see is being able to take legal action against the person who caused the crash.

      • John — I would love to see that! Maybe a few arrests of the initial culprit would send a valuable message!
