Coto de Caza, 2Q2007 CHP Collision Summary
July 21, 2007
The newly elected CZ Master Association Board of directors’ president has vowed to improve the relationship between the board and CHP management, a minimum requirement in order to increase the CHP traffic patrol to at least 2006 levels.

The figures for 2Q2007 include 2 injury traffic
collisions and 3 property damage-only. One of the
collisions is attributed to a DUI.
Thankfully the 2Q2007 CHP collision report buys the Zipperman/Yocham
board some time to mend the relationship with the CHP
in hopes that the collision rate will drop to the
pre-firing of the CHP levels.
