California Highway Patrol reminds truckers why chaining up is important


The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is asking truckers to slow down and obey chain law requirements after an unchained big rig went through a guardrail this week.

On Thursday, CHP’s Yreka Division took to Facebook to remind that chain requirements are put in place for a reason.

From CHP:

With slick road ways it’s important to slow down and obey chain restrictions. This crash happened last night when a truck drove through a snowy area without putting on chains and ended up going through a guard rail on US-97 at Dorris Hill. Fortunately the driver was not injured but a lot of time and resources were used to respond and handle the scene.
