CVSA, FMCSA launch driver safety campaign

Posted on October 14, 2009

In an effort to reduce crashes involving trucks, buses and passenger vehicles the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and other organizations, are joining together to educate all drivers on the toll their behavior takes on society. The message: “Cutting it close can cut your life short.”

 

"Driving is a privilege and all drivers need to share the road responsibly. Operation Safe Driver shines a spotlight on this responsibility and is implementing strategies to improve driver behavior and performance,” said Stephen Keppler, CVSA’s interim executive director.

 

Operation Safe Driver is a national awareness and enforcement campaign that targets improving both commercial and non-commercial driver behavior and performance through effective enforcement, education and awareness strategies.

 

The program runs from October 18 to 24, 2009 across North America and is supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Governors Highway Safety Association, American Trucking Associations, United Motorcoach Association, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and the National District Attorneys Association, among others.
