72-Hour Enforcement Crackdown Happening This Week in These States
Atlanta, GA – Multiple states are participating in a highway traffic enforcement blitz this week.
Law enforcement officials in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina are participating this week in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) SafeDRIVE (Distracted Reckless Impaired Visibility Enforcement) campaign.
SafeDRIVE’s enforcement efforts will focus on both passenger vehicle and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver behaviors, and include monitoring for aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating, failing to wear safety belts, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.
Additionally, as part of the initiative, CMV inspectors will be ensuring commercial drivers are adhering to safety regulations, including hours of service compliance, commercial driver license compliance, medical certification, and proper credentialing.
This week’s blitz will begin on Tuesday, June 22 and conclude on Thursday, June 24.
SafeDRIVE will continue later this year with similar enforcement blitzes scheduled for August 3-5 and October 5-7.
