Operation Safe Driver Week 2020

July 12-18 is dedicated by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance as 2020’s Operation Safe Driver Week. This week aims to reduce high-risk behaviors through traffic enforcement strategies.

CVSA selected speeding as the focus for this year’s Operation Safe Driver Week. The roads have fewer drivers on them than before due to COVID19. Ironically, many kinds of motor vehicle accidents have increased because less traffic has led to more speeding.

In addition to speeding, law enforcement across North America will be especially watchful for unsafe drivers this week. Officers are looking for other dangerous driving behaviors, such as:

  • distracted driving
  • seatbelt violations
  • following too closely
  • improper lane change

As always, we expect commitment to safety from our drivers to maintain Destination: Excellence. This week is a reminder to us all – whether driving a commercial vehicle or a personal vehicle.
