Many Morongo Basin residents will celebrate Independence Day this weekend with outdoor barbecues, picnics, and social gatherings. If you drive anywhere this weekend, the California Highway Patrol encourages you to designate a sober driver and buckle up. The CHP will be out in full force from 6 p.m. Thursday to midnight, Sunday. During this maximum enforcement period, CHP officers will focus on speeding violations, seatbelt use, and looking for those driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. During the 2013 Fourth of July weekend, 56 people were killed in collisions under CHP jurisdiction, and 70 percent of them were not wearing their seat belt.
