CBP in San Diego Reminds Border Crossers to Anticipate More Traffic at Area Ports When School Year Begins

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials want to remind members of the traveling public to expect to see more cars and pedestrians at area border crossings in the coming days as the summer break for thousands of area students comes to an end.

“The beginning of the school year means more traffic on area highways, surface streets, roads near schools as well as border ports of entry,” said Gurdit Dhillon, CBP director of field operations in San Diego. “Now is the time for anyone who makes a morning commute, whether across town or across the border, to adjust their schedules to accommodate the additional demands that school related traffic places on area roads, streets, highways and international border crossings.”

Large numbers of students who attend classes at various private and public schools and colleges in San Diego commute from Mexico to the U.S. on a daily basis. This increase in traffic, especially during the traditionally busy morning commute, can result in longer than normal crossing times.

“The impact can be felt across the board including the fast-pass and pedestrian lanes,” said Dhillon. “Domestic commuters traditionally adjust the morning commute schedule at this time of the year and all border crossers should plan accordingly as well.”

Being prepared for the inspection process by having documents ready for the CBP officer, declaring all items acquired in Mexico, and ending cell phone conversations before arriving at the inspection station can also reduce wait times.
