Poster for CVSA Operation Safe Driver Week 2023CVSA Operation Safe Driver Week 2023

Are you ready? Operation Safe Driver Week is just around the corner, next week, on July 9 – 15, 2023.

Operation Safe Driver holds activities across the United States, Canada and Mexico to increase commercial vehicle and non-commercial vehicle traffic enforcement, safety belt enforcement, and driver roadside inspections; improve driver regulatory compliance; implement commercial driver educational and awareness programs to the motor carrier population; educate youth about safely sharing the roads with large trucks and buses; increase awareness to the general motoring public about safe operations around commercial motor vehicles.

This year’s Operation Safe Driver Week will take place July 9-15, with an emphasis on speeding. Throughout Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel will be on the lookout for commercial motor vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in risky driving. Identified unsafe drivers will be pulled over and issued a citation or warning.

According to the CVSA website, “Data shows that traffic stops and interactions with law enforcement help reduce problematic driving behaviours. By making contact with drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement personnel aim to make our roadways safer by targeting high-risk driving behaviours.

  • Speeding has been a factor in more than a quarter of crash deaths since 2008.
  • Speeding of any kind was the most frequent driver-related crash factor for drivers of commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicles.
  • Speeding was a factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities in 2018, killing 9,378 people or an average of more than 25 people per day.
  • Distracted driving claimed 3,142 lives in 2019.
  • Of the 22,215 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2019, 47% were not wearing seat belts. Seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts, in 2017 alone.
  • Every day, about 28 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes — that’s one person every 52 minutes. In 2019, 10,142 people lost their lives due to drunk driving.”
