Speeding the focus of the next CSVA event

Drivers on Texas roads and others should be ready for increased enforcement of speeding laws during the next Operation Safe Driver Week. The event will take place in July 2019, and it is sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance. According to the president of the CSVA, speeding has accounted for roughly one out of three traffic fatalities over the past several decades. Furthermore, it was a factor in 94% of crashes in 2015.

That was according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA also noted that speeding accounted for 26% of all traffic fatalities in 2017. Drivers who are caught speeding may be issued a citation in an effort to change their behavior on the road. Research has shown that citations do have an impact on how drivers react behind the wheel.

In addition to traffic citations, the CSVA will engage in public outreach and education to let drivers know about the dangers of speeding. While speeding will be the top priority during the next Operation Safe Driving Week, it will not be the only point of emphasis. Law enforcement will also be on the lookout for distracted driving, not wearing a seat belt or following too closely. Furthermore, there will be increased enforcement of drunk and drugged driving laws.

Individuals who experience a brain or back injury in a motor vehicle accident may be entitled to damages related to those injuries. For instance, an injured victim may be allowed to collect lost wages or recoup medical expenses incurred to treat the injury. Future medical costs and a reduced quality of life might also be factored into an award. This assumes that another party was drunk, distracted or otherwise negligent for causing a car accident to occur.
