Redwood City: Highway Patrol impounds cars for speeding

Bay City News. Peninsula 360 Press [P360P].

A California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer in Redwood City provided a satisfying answer Sunday to other drivers who witnessed two speeding cars on the San Mateo Bridge and may have wondered some version of, "Where's a cop when you need one?"

CHP Officer Maldonado was driving westbound on the bridge when he saw two cars, a Chevrolet Camaro and a BMW 3 Series, racing each other at speeds of up to 105 mph (169 km/h). 

Both vehicles were using all lanes, making several lane changes, cutting off vehicles and nearly causing several crashes, according to a Facebook post from the CHP Redwood City office.

Officer Maldonado stopped both vehicles at the end of the bridge and was soon joined by other CHP officers.

Each of the drivers was a male in his 20s, one from San Jose and the other from Morgan Hill, and each had a female passenger of approximately the same age. One of the drivers was unlicensed.

Officers impounded both vehicles for 30 days and cited both drivers. The four occupants of the two cars were given a much slower ride off the road by the officers.
