Truckee, Tahoe New Years revelers on good behavior

Other than a little New Year’s snow, 2010 festivities ended calmly and without any problems.

Both the Truckee California Highway Patrol Dispatch and the Placer County Sheriff’s Office reported no major accidents or disturbances during the night. Both agencies increased staffing levels as a precautionary measure for the festivities. The CHP planned for maximum deployment of their officers targeting drunk drivers on Interstate 80.

Snow conditions during the night were moderate, causing some chain controls to be set up along I-80 and State Highways 267 and 89 around 10 a.m. Throughout the day the National Weather Service in Reno estimates a smattering of rain and snow fall until 10 p.m. and snow accumulation to be less than a half inch.
