Safe Driver Week to Focus on Distracted Driving

Any time a person gets behind the wheel, there is a risk that he or she may be involved in a motor vehicle accident. More vehicles on roadways mean that there is less of an opportunity to make moves necessary to avoid a collision. The larger the vehicle, the more difficult it is to prevent an accident from occurring.

When a truck accident happens, the drivers of smaller vehicles are at a significant disadvantage. These autos simply are not built to be able to withstand collisions that carry that amount of force.

Officials have constantly been trying to reduce the amount of trucking accidents on our nation's highways. One part of these efforts is "Operation Safe Driver" week, which will run from October 14th through the 20th.

The campaign will focus on correcting on unsafe and aggressive driving habits of some truck drivers. If drivers are ticketed for these types of behaviors, this could result in serious penalties for both the drivers and employers. If a driver or company has too many safety violations, the company could be ordered out of service.

Additionally, the campaign will also share some information about how motorists may safely operate around tractor trailers. Trucks have more blind spots than regular passenger vehicles, and some motorists may not be aware where all of the blind spots are located. Officials hope that increasing awareness of these areas will help lead to fewer deaths caused by trucking accidents.
