HEMET: CHP to start patrolling Florida Avenue

Jul 18, 2013 Full story: The Press-Enterprise

Anyone with the urge to speed down Florida Avenue or jaywalk across Hemet's main thoroughfare better get it out of their system before Monday, because that's when traffic enforcement will be increased.

Funny how the City of Hemet has to pay extra dollars in order for the CHP to patrol a California State Highway. Isn't that the CHP's job in the first place?

I work my job every day for my paycheck, but if you pay me MORE, I will actually DO my job!

Sign me up for that program!

TWO CHP patrolling 10 hrs a day, notice I said day....just for a month.

I sure hope they cite these jaywalkers. I can't say how many I have almost hit in the last 3 years. They have to be idiots to keep trying to cross Florida Ave.

I really do not see much speeding, cause there are to many cars on that highway anyway.

No. Florida Ave is not a highway. Highway 74 in Valle Vista and Homeland is, but once it becomes Florida Ave, it's the cities responsibility. Hopefully, this will stop all the people walking out in front of cars to cross the street.
Nighway 74 is a highway, start to end. Therefore CHP responsibility...Does not matter that it "becomes" Florida Ave...still State responsibility. Prove me wrong.
