Beware: Unmarked CHPs patrolling Highway 49

Returning from the “flatlands” on Tuesday, I noticed unmarked CHPs patrolling Highway 49 and writing speeding tickets galore.

Beware the “Chips” behind the wheel of innocent-looking American-made sedans!

This reminds me of the police cars on the outer islands of Hawaii —  all of a sudden a blue light appears out of nowhere.

It’s good for all of us, though: Highway 49 is a narrow road where people speed all too often. Grant dollars are at work.

Be careful out there.
