The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s Operation Safe Driver Week, a safe-driving awareness and outreach initiative, is scheduled for July 10-16.
Throughout Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel will be on the lookout for commercial motor vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in risky driving. CVSA aims to improve driving behaviors through educational and traffic enforcement strategies and interactions with law enforcement.
Identified unsafe drivers will be pulled over and issued a citation or warning.
Data shows that traffic stops and interactions with law enforcement help reduce problematic driving behaviors, such as distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence and not wearing seatbelts. By making contact with drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel aim to make our roadways safer by targeting high-risk driving behaviors, CVSA officials said in a press release.
