Law enforcement agencies across North America will engage in heightened traffic safety enforcement and education aimed at unsafe driving by both commercial motor vehicle drivers and car drivers during the week of Oct. 16-22.
CVSA says the Operation Safe Driver program was created to help reduce the number of crashes, injuries and deaths involving trucks, buses and cars due to unsafe driving behaviors. Specifically, CVSA says law enforcement will be looking for speeding, failure to use a seat belt, distracted driving, failure to obey traffic control devices, following too closely, improper lane change and more.
During the 2015 Operation Safe Driver Week, more than 21,000 vehicles, including trucks and cars, were pulled over, and more than 19,000 roadside inspections were conducted on commercial vehicles. To read the full article about 2016 safety week, click here.
