The CHP has joined forces with other agencies to promote the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's Operation Safe Driver from Oct. 14-20.

This operation targets unsafe and aggressive driving by both passenger and commercial vehicle drives by conducting enforcement operations and public outreach. The activities will be conducted statewide on highways and local roads.

The CHP urges drivers to stay out of blind spots, keep in mind that trucks need more braking space, don't tailgate or speed, allow plenty of room between vehicles and buckle up.
