During the week of October 19-25, 2014, CVSA has partnered with FMCSA to sponsor Operation Safe Driver. This means during this week law enforcement agencies across the country will take part in countless traffic stops aimed at unsafe driving targeting both commercial and passenger vehicles.
Last year during Operation Safe Driver 74,765 commercial and passenger vehicles were stopped, which is triple the amount stopped in 2012.
The top three reasons drivers were cited and issued warnings last year were (1) Speeding, (2) Failing to use a Safety Belt, (3) Failure to obey Traffic Control Devices.
As we always say, safety first. For your own safety and the safety of others, please make sure you are driving with caution.
Also, please put attention to your equipment and make sure it is in good condition and put extra attention to your logbooks.
If you should have any questions please feel free to give us a call!
