Are You Ready for CVSA Operation Safe Driver Week?

Are You Ready for CVSA Operation Safe Driver Week?

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has confirmed that Operation Safe Driver Week will proceed as planned this year, with enforcement scheduled for July 7-13, 2024. This year’s event will focus on reckless, careless, and dangerous driving.

“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.” 

What Happens During the CVSA Operation Safe Driver Week?

During Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement officers across Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. will be monitoring both commercial and passenger vehicle drivers for unsafe driving practices including speeding, distracted driving, tailgating, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Drivers found engaging in these behaviors will be stopped by law enforcement and could receive a warning or citation.

Why Does Operation Safe Driver Week Matter?

According to the American Transportation Research Institute, a truck driver with a reckless driving violation is 114% more likely to be involved in a crash. Initiatives like Operation Safe Driver Week emphasize the importance of driving safely throughout the year and the consequences of not doing so.

To help your drivers prepare for Operation Safe Driver Week, and every day they're on the road, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has free resources for commercial drivers available. Check out the printable materials on defeating distracted driving, safety tips for professional drivers, and videos from actual truck drivers and commercial vehicle inspectors on their website

How Driver Data Helps You Get Ahead of Driver Violations & Crashes

By monitoring your drivers' behaviors behind the wheel, you can be alerted to new violations that increase their risk of being involved in an accident. 

Violations including speeding, DWI/DUIs, and license and DOT medical card downgrades, are all visible with a motor vehicle record (MVR) monitoring solution. After you're notified of a new violation, you can take the appropriate corrective action to help prevent these violations from turning into crashes — or expensive lawsuits — both of which can increase your commercial insurance premiums
