The Commercial Safety Vehicle Alliance (CVSA) annually organizes Operation Safe Driver Week in partnership with FMCSA and other transportation safety organizations as a nationwide roadside enforcement event. This year's Operation Safe Driver Week is July 11-17, 2021. Throughout that week, law enforcement personnel will be on the lookout for commercial motor vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in risky driving, with an emphasis on speeding. Speeding was the most frequent driver-related crash factor for drivers of commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicles.
"Data shows that traffic stops and interactions with law enforcement help reduce problematic driving behaviors," said Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police. "By making contact with drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel aim to make our roadways safer by targeting high-risk driving behaviors."
In addition to speeding, law enforcement personnel will be tracking other dangerous driver behaviors throughout Operation Safe Driver Week, such as reckless or aggressive driving, distracted driving, following too closely, improper lane change, failure to obey traffic control devices, failure to use a seat belt, evidence of drunk or drugged driving, etc.
Identified unsafe drivers will be pulled over and issued a citation or warning.
CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Program was created to help to reduce the number of crashes involving commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicles due to unsafe driving behaviors.
