Operation Safe Driver Week Starts Oct. 19

Operation Safe Driver Week Starts Oct. 19

To raise driver awareness and increase road safety, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will kick off its annual Operation Safe Driver program Oct. 19, nationwide.

During the week, enforcement agencies across the nation will be on heightened alert aimed at both commercial vehicles and cars. Among the things drivers can expect are more-frequent roadside inspections, strict safety-belt enforcement, and much more. These will be implemented with the hope that they will make a lasting impression on drivers, and they will continue safe practices throughout the year.

In addition to heightened safety protocols, the CVSA also hopes to educate drivers to be safer and more aware while on the road. Law enforcement and transportation safety officials will offer awareness and educational safety programs to anyone who may be interested.

Truck drivers and truck fleet operators can also download these helpful tools and information free from the CVSA website.
