Driving Citations Up – Local media analysis of CHP Report

Driving Citations Up – Local media analysis of CHP Report

March 29, 2008

After years of neglect, the local media is picking up on CHP data – must be the “deliverance effect” – that is, no more local reality TV

“I think we have more people who are older with children. If the moms and dads are busy, they are going fast. If they are not busy, they are slowing down”, the local media reports, after noting that drivers over 40 received more citations, that those younger than 21.

Years ago when a certain CZ board member blamed the increase of traffic accidents on Coto soccer moms, we identified the GRUP Syndrome, also known as the Michael Jackson, or Peter Pan Syndrome – the refusal of certain populace to grow up.

At the time, we also noted that simply rattling off figures during a general CZ board meeting is useless, even if the board is now reporting CHP data, unless there is an element of CLCA – Closed Loop Corrective Action. In other words, what is the report saying? Is there a corrective action needed? Who is to follow up? – if questions such as these are not asked, then perhaps the data should not even be collected. At least the local media seems to be trying.
