Operation Safe Driver Week: Law Enforcement Cracking Down on Speeding Starting July 9
At Love’s, a cornerstone of our highway hospitality is providing a friendly and safe experience for our guests. A commitment to safety every mile of every day on the road cannot be taken for granted. We are proud to help our professional driver customers get back on the road quickly and safely to keep America running.
Sunday, July 9, kicks off Operation Safe Driver Week, organized by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). Throughout the week, law enforcement will be on the lookout for unsafe behaviors of drivers in commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles.
This year, patrols will be especially focusing on speeding, which continues to be a problem in today’s fast-paced society. Speeding amplifies the consequences of collisions, and when combined with other unsafe behaviors like distracted driving, can lead to tragic results. The seconds and minutes saved by speeding are not worth the risk to yourself and other drivers.
Don’t forget these important reminders, not just next week, but every day you’re on the road:
- Watch your speed - Especially in construction zones or during adverse weather.
- Put away distractions - Answering that text message can wait until you're parked.
- Wear your seatbelt anytime the vehicle is moving - Buckle up, lower your risk.
- Avoid substances that can impair your driving - Stay alert!
- Pay attention to all traffic laws - This includes proper lane changes and following distance
We care about you and want you to get home safe to your family and friends. Our commitment to help you stay safe can be seen in our growing services at Love’s Truck Care and Speedco, the nation’s largest over-the-road maintenance network. From Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections, to TirePass and emergency roadside assistance, we are here to keep your vehicle running safely while increasing your uptime.
