CVSA schedules nationwide safety blitz for Oct. 19-25

Truckers who drive unsafely and four-wheelers who drive unsafely around trucks will be the targets of an enforcement blitz beginning this weekend.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and law enforcement are teaming up Oct. 19-25 for what they’re calling “Operation Safe Driver.”

“Inattention, insufficient awareness of traffic conditions, and unsafe maneuvers by drivers are far and away the leading causes of fatal crashes between passenger cars and commercial vehicles,” said John H. Hill, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, according to the CVSA Web site.
