Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance Releases Results from 2015 Operation Safe Driver Week
Law enforcement officers pulled over 21,012 commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and passenger vehicle drivers during the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 2015 Operation Safe Driver Week. In addition, 19,480 North American Standard Roadside Inspections were conducted by CVSA-certified inspectors on commercial drivers and vehicles.
Operation Safe Driver is a CVSA program aimed at decreasing the number of fatalities and injuries from crashes on our roadways caused by unsafe driving behaviors by both CMV drivers and passenger vehicle drivers. During this year’s Operation Safe Driver Week – a seven-day enforcement and awareness campaign conducted on Oct. 18-24, 2015 – data was collected by 2,789 law enforcement officials at 706 locations across the United States and Canada. There also were outreach, educational and awareness events throughout the week at high schools, state capitals, state fairs, truck rodeos, sporting events and other locations.
