NORTH COAST- The California Highway Patrol will ring in the new year with maximum enforcement. CHP officers will be looking out for drunk drivers Wednesday.
The agency's maximum enforcement period begins at 6 p.m. and will go until 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
Last year during New Years weekend 14 Californians were killed in accidents and over 400 people were arrested statewide for drunk driving.
CHP is encouraging drivers to report drunk drivers by calling 911 and to be safe.
