July 11-17 is the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver. During this week-long event, law enforcement will be paying special attention to the safe driving behaviors of big trucks with a focus on speeding.
The police are always on the lookout for unsafe driving, but the point of Operation Safe Driver is to draw extra attention to the problems society faces with unsafe driving. Speeding is one of the biggest predictors of a higher crash risk, and no professional driver should be engaging in the practice. Those who operate as professionals have nothing to worry about.
