Operation Safe Driver Week coming in July

North Carolina drivers should be aware that Operation Safe Driver Week is scheduled to take place the week of July 15-21. During the initiative, which is organized by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, law enforcement agencies will focus on preventing unsafe driving behaviors by the operators of both passenger and commercial vehicles.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, hazardous driving behaviors are a top cause of highway crashes in the U.S. In fact, unsafe driving plays a role in 93 percent of all crashes involving passenger vehicles and 88 percent of accidents involving large trucks. To help reduce accidents, injuries and fatalities, CVSA created the Operation Safe Driver Program to raise awareness and target unsafe drivers.

National Safety Council hopes to eliminate traffic deaths

In the 1950s, it seemed unlikely that the United States could send an astronaut to the moon. However, the country's best scientists banded together to make it happen. The CEO of the National Safety Council referenced that great achievement when announcing the organization's new plan to eliminate all traffic deaths throughout the country, including in North Carolina, by 2050.

To reach that goal, the NSC formed the Road to Zero Coalition, a 675-member safety group that includes trucking companies, trucking industry associations and trucking suppliers. On April 22, the coalition released a report outlining the ways the nation could reduce traffic deaths to zero within the next three decades. The suggestions include increasing seat belt usage to 100 percent, accelerating the implementation of safety technologies in motor vehicles and addressing road safety issues like speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving. The report also recommends improving the road-sharing relationship between passenger vehicles and commercial trucks.
