The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will have their annual Operation Safe Driver Week from October 15-21. Each year, this educational and enforcement blitz is held, according to the CVSA, “to spotlight unsafe driving behaviors by both commercial motor vehicle drivers and car drivers in an effort to combat the number of deaths and injuries from crashes.”
Commercial drivers can expect more roadside inspections, as well as an increased emphasis on distracted driving. This includes aggressive driving and cell phone usage by commercial drivers. Compliance with Federal laws regarding distracted driving results in safer environments on the road and increased situational awareness.
