Operation Safe Driver

CVSA, in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), state, provincial and local law enforcement and industry launched the campaign in 2007 to combat the number of deaths resulting from crashes involving large trucks, buses and passenger vehicles.
