​In mid-July, enforcement personnel will focus on the unsafe driving behaviors of both commercial and passenger-vehicle drivers as a part of Operation Safe Driver Week.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will use the enforcement campaign, slated for July 15-21, 2018, to help reduce the number of crashes, deaths, and injuries involving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) as the result of unsafe driving practices. It targets risky driving behavior by anyone on the nation’s roadways – in or around CMVs – through education and traffic enforcement.

Examples of unsafe driving behaviors tracked during the week include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting
  • Failure to use a seatbelt
  • Following too closely
  • Improper lane change
  • Failure to obey traffic control devices

The event is sponsored by CVSA in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and has received support from industry and transportation safety organizations.
