Another week of regulatory check-ups, and (likely) an even tighter spot trucking market is upon us.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week is fast approaching, scheduled to take place July 15-21, 2018. Safety officers will be monitoring roadways for unsafe driving behavior, including speeding, distracted driving, failure to wear a seatbelt, and a variety of other potential commercial and passenger vehicle infractions.
Statistics tell us that nearly 39,000 citations and warnings were issued to commercial truck drivers during this week in 2017.
Traditionally, rather than drive during a road check week, drivers will use these pre-announced regulatory weeks as their annual vacation time. With a pattern of drivers not working on the same week, coupled with an already crippled driver market, the spot truck market tightens further on these weeks.
