The CVSA is disturbed by the sheer number of crashes that these behaviors cause.
"Aggressive and unsafe driving behaviors by truck and bus drivers, as well as the passenger car drivers operating unsafely around them, are primary factors in more deaths on our roadways than a 737 airplane crashing every other week," the CVSA stated through a recent news release.
Operation Safe Driver
To combat this growing problem, the week of October 16-22 has been named Operation Safe Driver. Along with increased police patrols and citations, outreach programs will continue educating drivers on multiple safety issues. Ongoing safety programs operated by the CVSA include Teen and Trucks and Defeating Distracted Driving.
The Bedford trucking crash attorneys at the Hart Law Firm urge both truck drivers and commuters to use the events of this week to sharpen your driving skills, remembering, always, to avoid distracted and aggressive driving.
