FMCSA’s 3-Day Enforcement Crackdown Happening Next Week in Multiple States
Atlanta, GA – Multiple states are participating in a highway traffic enforcement blitz next week.
Law enforcement officials in states including: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina, are participating in next week’s SafeDRIVE (Distracted Reckless Impaired Visibility Enforcement) campaign in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
SafeDRIVE’s enforcement efforts will be focused along Interstate 95 and will crack down on both passenger vehicle and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver behaviors.
Specifically, officials will be monitoring for aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating, failing to wear safety belts, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.
Distracted and reckless driving can be fatal. Help keep #OurRoads safe, particularly during #SafeDRIVE October 5-7 when more enforcement is on I-95. See safe driving tips: https://t.co/UnIW0HXzSt pic.twitter.com/W8Wib6n0lq

Additionally, as part of the initiative, CMV inspectors will be ramping up enforcement efforts on commercial drivers by ensuring compliance to safety regulations, including hours of service, commercial driver licensing requirements, medical certification, and proper vehicle credentialing.
Next week’s blitz will be the third SafeDRIVE campaign this year.
It will begin on Tuesday, October 5, and conclude on Thursday, October 7.
