“Speeding” Enforcement Blitz Happening This Week

Greenbelt, Maryland – The annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week is set for July 14-20, and will focus on speeding.

The theme of this year’s enforcement blitz is “Late won’t kill you, speeding will.”

Law enforcement will also be focused on other risky driving behaviors such as: distracted driving, texting, failure to use a seatbelt, following too closely, improper lane change, reckless or aggressive driving, failure to obey traffic control devices, evidence of drunk or drugged driving and more.

 

During the 2018 blitz, enforcement officials pulled over or inspected more than 42,000 commercial vehicle drivers and issued 10,709 citations and 29,908 warnings for unsafe driving.

The top five citations issued were for violations of state and local laws (6,008 citations), speeding (1,908), failing to use a seat belt (1,169), failure to obey a traffic control device (754) and using a handheld phone (262).
