Operation Safe Driver Week

Today begins Operation Safe Driver Week. During this initiative, traffic enforcement personnel will be looking for drivers who are engaging in unsafe driving behaviors. Those who are caught will be issued a warning or citation.

In the past few months, the average speed on interstate highways and expressways has increased as much as 75%, as the number of vehicles on the road has decreased due to stay at home orders. With this in mind, this year’s Operation Safe Driver Week will focus on speeding. While it is always important to drive safe and within the speed limit, here is a quick refresh of driver safety to abide by at all times to keep you safe and back home to those that matter most.
