In what has become an annual tradition, we like to kick off the summer vacation driving season with safety tips from the CHP. This year at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach we met up with officers Alec Pereyda and Bobby Eurine. Between the two of them they give us their insights on safe driving tips, things that they are looking for on patrol, and specific information regarding teen drivers. Additionally, they inform us about what to do in case of a flat tire or other mechanical car issues. This timely information is great not only for holidays but year ‘round as well. Enjoy!

NOTE: The CHP is always looking to hire quality candidates to join their team. For more information, please visit:
