Operation Safe Driver Week, the annual enforcement spree put on by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, is set this year for July 15-21.

During the weeklong blitz, enforcers will be focusing on traffic violations, seat belt enforcement, driver roadside inspections and driver regulatory compliance. CVSA says driver behavior is the cause of more than 88 percent of large truck crashes and 93 percent of passenger vehicle crashes.
