The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will ramp up enforcement activity starting Sunday for its annual Operation Safe Driver Week enforcement blitz.

From Oct. 16 to Oct. 22, law enforcement agencies across North America will engage in heightened traffic safety enforcement and education aimed at unsafe driving by both commercial motor vehicle drivers and car drivers.

CVSA says the Operation Safe Driver program was created to help reduce the number of crashes, injuries and deaths involving trucks, buses and cars due to unsafe driving behaviors. During the week, there will be increased traffic enforcement for both cars and trucks.

Specifically, CVSA says law enforcement will be looking for speeding, failure to use a seat belt, distracted driving, failure to obey traffic control devices, following too closely, improper lane change and more.

During the 2015 Operation Safe Driver Week, more than 21,000 vehicles, including trucks and cars, were pulled over, and more than 19,000 roadside inspections were conducted on commercial vehicles. 

The top five warnings and citations given to commercial drivers:

  • Size and weight
  • Speeding
  • Failure to use seat belt
  • Failure to obey traffic control device
  • Using a handheld phone
