The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual Operation Safe Driver Week will take place July 15-21, 2018.

CVSA’s Operation Safe Driver Program was created to help to reduce the number of crashes, deaths, and injuries involving large trucks, buses and passenger vehicles due to unsafe driving behaviors. During Operation Safe Driver Week, there will be increased CMV and passenger vehicle traffic enforcement.

Driving behaviors that will be targeted during the week include:

  • distracted driving

  • speeding

  • texting

  • failure to use a seat belt

  • following too closely

  • improper lane change

  • failure to obey traffic control devices

Last year, nearly 39,000 citations and warnings were issued to truck drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week. More than 84 percent of these violations were for state and local moving violations.
