LIVE: CALIFORNIA'S MAXIMUM ENFORCEMENT PERIOD FOR THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS PART OF A LARGER EFFORT BETWEEN STATE PATROL'S IN WASHINGTON STATE AND OREGON, FOCUSING ON INTERSTATE FIVE. THE COMMISSIONER OF EACH DEPARTMENT IS TAKING PART IN THE ENFORCEMENT OF DRUNK DRIVING, SPEEDING, AND SEAT BELT LAWS.

SUPER: TODAY/WOODLAND HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICE/YOLO COUNTY

VO: (:25) AS PART OF THE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY, CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL COMMISSIONER MIKE BROWN ATTENDED MORNING BRIEFING AT THE WOODLAND OFFICE NEAR SACRAMENTO. BROWN THEN PATROLLED INTERSTATE FIVE THROUGH THAT AREA OF YOLO COUNTY. ALTHOUGH BROWN GOT BEHIND SEVERAL SPEEDING DRIVERS, HE DID NOT ISSUE ANY TICKETS TO DRIVERS.

SUPER: MIKE BROWN/COMMISSIONER/CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL

SOT: (:24)

SAYS: "WE'RE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF REALLY WRITING TICKETS, WE'RE GETTING IN THE BUSINESS OF VOLUNTARY COMPLIANCE. AND IN THIS CASE, PEOPLE ARE BEHAVING THEMSELVES OUT HERE AT THIS TIME ON THIS STRETCH OF ROADWAY AND THAT'S A GOOD THING. WE JUST COVERED ABOUT 20 MILES, WE'VE BEEN IN AND OUT OF TRAFFIC, DIFFERENT GROUPS, WE HAVE NOT FOUND FOLKS DOING EXCESSIVE SPEED. THOSE FOLKS PUSHING THE ENVELOPE SLOW DOWN WHEN THEY SEE US AND OTHER UNITS OUT HERE. THAT'S A GOOD THING."

VO TAG: BROWN IS STOPPING IN COALINGA ON INTERSTATE FIVE IN FRESNO COUNTY LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND WILL CONCLUDE THE PHOTO OP WITH A PRESS CONFERENCE IN SAN DIEGO ON SUNDAY. MAXIMUM ENFORCEMENT PERIODS PLACE 80 PERCENT OF THE PATROL'S OFFICERS ON DUTY THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THE PERIOD IS FROM SIX O'CLOCK THIS EVENING TO MIDNIGHT TUESDAY.

SUPER: MIKE BROWN/COMMISSIONER/CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL

SOT: (:30)

SAYS: "TODAY WE'RE KICKING OFF OUR MAXIMUM ENFORCEMENT PERIOD OVER THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND ALSO A SPECIAL PROGRAM ON I-5 BETWEEN CANADA AND MEXICO IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR PARTNERS THE WASHINGTON STATE PATROL AND THE OREGON STATE POLICE, WE'RE TRYING TO START A PROGRAM CALLED ARRIVE ALIVE ON I-5. WE WANT PEOPLE TO BE SAFE ON THAT ROADWAY AND ALL THE ROADWAYS IN CALIFORNIA. LAST YEAR WE LOST 46 PEOPLE IN CALIFORNIA'S THREE DAY HOLIDAY, LABOR DAY AND WE WANT TO REDUCE THAT SIGNIFICANTLY."

SOT: (:28)

SAYS: "A LOT OF SPEED, A LOT OF LANE CHANGES, A LOT OF TURNING MOVEMENTS, DRUNK DRIVERS UP HERE. YOU GET DOWN IN L-A YOU'RE LOOKING AT THINGS LIKE DRUNK DRIVERS, LANE CHANGES, SPEED IS NOT AS BIG AN ISSUE DEPENDING ON LOCATION, THERE'S A LOT OF OTHER THINGS THAT CAN ACTUALLY CAUSE CRASHES. SO YOU HAVE TO KNOW YOUR ROADWAY, KNOW YOUR AREA SO YOU CAN KNOW WHAT'S CAUSING COLLISIONS SO YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND RESPOND."
