This year’s Operation Safe Driver Week from the CVSA is scheduled for July 10 - 16, 2022 with a focus on speeding. Law enforcement personnel will be on roadways throughout this time issuing warnings and citations to commercial motor vehicle and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in unsafe driving behaviors, such as speeding, distracted driving, following too closely, and improper lane changes.
Among the alarming statistics in NHTSA’s report was the key finding that 29% of all traffic fatalities in 2020 were a result of speeding. Consequently, speeding, in particular, will be a dangerous driving behavior that officers will identify and target during Operation Safe Driver Week. So, to spread awareness, we've thought of 7 things you should never do while on the road.
- Speeding – watch your speed closely
- Cutting in front of another driver and then slowing down
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Blocking cars attempting to pass or change lanes
- Running red lights
The CVSA is heavily basing its focus on the NHTSA's traffic data. To see the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2020 annual traffic crash data, please click here.
