The first truck inspection date you should remember is the CVSA’s Operation Safe Driver Week 2019. This inspection will last from July 14th to July 20th.
Each year this inspection puts focus on some form of dangerous driver behavior and this year there is an emphasis on speeding.
During this week,North American jurisdictions will be promoting and endorsing the message: “Late won’t kill you, speeding will” Speeding is the one thing we have all been found guilty of from time to time, so this comes as a forewarning to every trucker with a led foot, who may get stopped.
The CVSA will partner with law enforcement personnel to issue warnings and/or citations to drivers operating a commercial vehicle or passenger vehicle, driving at unlawful speeds.
