A: The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has a policy on highway violence, which involves responding to incidents of violence on highways and taking appropriate action to prevent and address such incidents. The CHP aims to protect the safety of motorists and the public, and to apprehend individuals who commit violent acts on highways. The CHP may use a range of tactics to address highway violence, including increased enforcement, targeted patrols, and public education campaigns. The CHP also works closely with other law enforcement agencies to coordinate efforts to prevent and respond to highway violence.
