Capt. Mike Alvarez of the California Highway Patrol’s San Gorgonio office was at the April Pine Cove Property Owners Association meeting.
During the meeting, some members discussed their adventures taking the detour to Hemet through Anza in the early morning. Highway 371 tended to have less enforcement and, therefore, more dangerous driving episodes.
CHP posted the following on Tuesday, “SR-371 has become an increasingly popular way to get from San Diego County to Riverside County. With the support of Riverside County Supervisor Chuck Washington, 3rd District, the San Gorgonio Pass CHP is bumping up our enforcement efforts, focusing on speed, crossing over double yellow lines, and impaired driving. Get ready for some strict, zero-tolerance enforcement.”
Alvarez will be at the Town Baker from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18. You can have “Coffee with a Cop” and discuss your issues with him and his staff.
