This weekend is the primary large occasion end of the week since COVID-19 limitations were lifted and weighty traffic is normal on both the streets and noticeable all around.
“The airport is seeing a significant number increase in travelers. For example, June was tracking at 120% above 2019 numbers, so that’s back to 100 percent of travelers in addition to 20 percent growth,” said Fresno Yosemite International’s Vikkie Calderon.
Calderon suggests air voyagers show up sooner than expected.
In the interim, on the streets, the California Highway Patrol will be out and about in large numbers as the Maximum Enforcement Period begins Friday evening and will go through Monday evening.
“We will be out there; we will be enforcing the vehicle code and the laws, and we want to remind everybody that speed is a crucial issue when it comes to our fatalities,” said CHP Sgt. Brian Pennings. “We had a tremendous amount of people die last 4th of July holiday weekend.”
Last fourth of July weekend, 36 individuals passed on in crashes on California streets. This year, the CHP says they’re ready for whatever comes their direction.
“We’re hoping for voluntary compliance by the public, we can’t do the job without you, but we will be there to conduct enforcement with those who don’t comply with the law,” said Sgt. Pennings.
For the individuals who intend to go via air, an update that any kind of firecracker in your things is illegal.
“Just everyone needs to remember this during the holiday weekend and as always throughout the year, fireworks do not fly. They are not allowed in carry-on baggage or checked baggage,” said Calderon.
