Operation Safe Driver targets unsafe driving among all drivers

Unsafe commercial truck and bus drivers are being targeted during this week's Operation Safe Driver program sponsored by the Commerical Vehicle Safety Alliance and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The week-long safety initiative will crack down on commercial drivers who practice unsafe and dangerous driving behaviors.

Operation Safe Driver is an effort to raise awareness among commercial drivers and other motorists about unsafe driving behaviors that contribute to car accidents in the United States. Fatal accidents are caused by distracted driving, speeding and aggressive behaviors in nine out of 10 fatal crashes, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

The safety program enforces more roadside safety inspections for commercial vehicles, raises awareness of driver compliance issues and informs the public about commercial carriers on the road. The safety program not only targets unsafe commercial vehicles but issues that affect all motorists by educating the public about safe driving behaviors around commercial trucks and buses.

The sponsors of this program hope to educate the public about the importance of safe driving behavior around commercial vehicles. The FMCSA said that truck and bus drivers and all motorists need to be aware of another while driving and learn to share the road in a safe manner.

While Operation Safe Driver is only for this week, the program also offers educational programs aimed at specific driving groups. Last year they issued the Defeating Distracted Driving educational program to teach commercial drivers the dangers of distracted driving.

This year, the program is focusing on teenage drivers. The new educational program, Teens & Trucks: Curbing Distracted Driving, will teach young drivers safe driving practices to help reduce or eliminate distractions while driving.
