Heads-up! Operation Safe Driver Week Is July 15-21
Just a heads-up to our friends in trucking: for the entirety of next week, July 15th – 21st, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is holding Operation Safe Driver Week to help improve the safety of America’s roadways and work towards the goal of zero vehicle-related deaths. Any unsafe driving behaviors exhibited by commercial motor vehicle drivers and drivers of passenger vehicles will be targeted by traffic safety personnel next week.
What is an example of an “unsafe driving behavior?”
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Not wearing a seatbelt while operating a vehicle or in a passenger vehicle
- Following too closely
- Improper lane changes
- Failure to obey traffic control devices
From everyone here at AFN, stay safe out on the roads!
