CVSA says two upcoming driver blitzes are still happening in spite of pandemic

Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) may have postponed the International Roadcheck inspection campaign indefinitely, but the agency currently has no plans to reschedule or cancel two other major enforcement efforts this summer.

This year, International Roadcheck was planned for May 5 — 7, but was postponed until sometime later this year due to the COVID-19 crisis.

However, the CVSA says that there are currently no plans to cancel or postpone Operation Safe Driver Week, taking place July 12 — 18 or Brake Safety Week, which is scheduled for August 23 — 29.

During Operation Safe Driver Week, law enforcement agencies throughout North America increase patrols, looking for dangerous driving behaviors from both passenger vehicle drivers and commercial vehicle drivers. These dangerous driving behaviors include speeding, distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, impaired driving, and failure to obey a traffic device.

During last year’s Operation Safe Driver Week effort, 46,752 citations and 87,624 were issued to both passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle drivers.

Brake Safety Week 2020 is scheduled to include both the August 23 — 29 enforcement effort and an additional single day unannounced inspection effort that could take place at any time throughout the year. During Brake Safety Week, inspectors perform primarily Level IV Inspections on commercial vehicle to identify out-of-adjustment brakes and brake-system violations.

The CVSA says that it will continue to monitor the pandemic and announce the new dates for International Roadcheck and update the status for Operation Safe Driver Week and Brake Safety Week when possible.
