This week’s a big week for driving safety advocates around the United States. It’s National Teen Driver Safety Week and Operation Safe Driver Week. As a Louisville, Kentucky legal practice that’s passionate about keeping our local roadways as safe as possible, we felt this week was the perfect time to discuss the importance of both campaigns.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week is a campaign to put an end to unsafe driving behaviors by commercial motor vehicle drivers as well as passenger vehicle drivers. During the week of October 16-22nd, law enforcement agencies throughout all of North America will take part in heightened traffic safety enforcement and education aimed to combat unsafe driving behaviors.
National Teen Driver Safety Week is a campaign that was started by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). During the week of October 16th-22nd, parents and educators around the nation will do everything they can to encourage young drivers to prioritize safety while behind the wheel. This encouragement can take the form of educational activities and pamphlets or individual conversations we can each have with the teenagers in our lives.
