Yes, That Nationwide Driver Crackdown Is Just A Few Days Away
Emphasis for This Year’s Driver Enforcement Campaign Is Speeding
You’ve got just a few more days to get yourself ready for a weeklong driver-focused enforcement campaign.
CVSA says that in 2017, speeding was a factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities.
“For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in nearly one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. That is unacceptable, especially because it’s preventable. We will continue to educate the public on the dangers of speeding and we will identify individuals who are speeding on our roadways and may issue citations as a deterrent to future speeding tendencies and to affect diver behavior,” said CVSA President Chief Jay Thompson.
During last year’s Operation Safe Driver Week, more than 57,000 citations were issued to passenger and commercial vehicle drivers. Commercial vehicle drivers were issued 1,908 citations for speeding during last year’s enforcement effort.
