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. 

This year’s Operation Safe Driver Week will take place July 11-17 with an emphasis on speeding. CVSA selected speeding as its focus this year because despite a drop in roadway travel last year due to the pandemic, nationally, traffic fatalities increased. 
2021 Focus Area – Speeding
What you need to know:

During Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel will be on the lookout for commercial motor vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in risky driving behaviors in or around a commercial motor vehicle. Identified unsafe drivers will be pulled over and issued a citation or warning.
Although speeding is the focus, CVSA will also look for other dangerous driving behaviors 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 (this violation is part of GWI Zero Tolerance Policy when operating a CMV)
– Evidence of drunk or drugged driving (this violation is part of GWI Zero Tolerance Policy when operating a CMV)

Receiving a warning or citation for any of these dangerous driving behaviors is considered a moving violation and will be a part of your driving record.
