Angeles Crest Highway speeding crackdown by CHP
CHP officers were out in force on Angeles Crest Highway over the weekend, issuing nearly five dozen traffic citations in response to reports of speeding motorcycles and some near-collisions, the Glendale News-Press reported.

The enforcement campaign yielded citations for speeding, unsafe passing and other violations as CHP officers staked out the 66-mile route popular with motorcyclists.

In addition to tickets for excessive speed and unsafe passing, the officers issued dozens of warnings and tickets for improperly displayed license plates, non-functioning lights and driving without a license, said CHP Sgt. Matt Armenta.
