CVSA Announces Safe Driver Week Crackdown

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced its annual Operation Safe Driver Week will take place July 15-21.

The group partners with local law enforcement throughout North America to crack down on seat belt enforcement, traffic violations, roadside inspections and regulatory compliance.  They will also focus on distracted driving, texting and compliance with local traffic laws.

During last year’s Operation Safe Driver Week, the CVSA reported almost 39,000 citations and warnings were issued to commercial vehicle drivers.  An overwhelming majority of those, 84 percent, were for state and local moving violations.  Speeding (7.4 percent), failure to use a seat belt (2.6 percent), failure to obey a traffic control device (2.5 percent) and using a cell phone (0.8 percent) round out the top five.
