Prepare Your Employees for Operation Safe Driver Week
Operation Safe Driver Week is happening this week, July 10 – 16. The week was created by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CSVA) to help detect and prevent commercial drivers’ unsafe behaviors on the road. During this seven-day initiative, law enforcement agencies throughout North America target both commercial vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in dangerous driving behaviors including distracted driving, following too closely, improper lane change, and drunk or drugged driving. This year the emphasis is on speeding.
During Operation Safe Driver Week 2021, law enforcement pulled over 28,148 commercial motor vehicles and 17,910 passenger vehicles and issued 10,486 warnings and 16,863 citations.*
Motor carriers must prepare for Operation Safe Driver Week by educating their employees on safe driving behaviors and enforcing commercial driver regulatory compliance throughout their organization.
