The focus area for this year’s Operation Safe Driver Week is speeding.
- Speeding was a factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities in 2018, killing 9,378 people or an average of more than 25 people per day.
- Data shows that even a 10 mph (16 km/h) increase in speed ups the risk of a crash by 9.1%.
- Speeding continues to be the number one cited driver-related factor in highway fatal crashes.
CVSA created a 2021 Operation Safe Driver Week postcard for drivers, motor carriers, trucking associations, etc. It’s a complimentary postcard that we will ship to our members, free of charge, as requested. The postcard is also available in Spanish and French.
