Operation Safe Driver begins

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Operation Safe Driver is a program designed to prevent large truck crashes.

The safety enforcement cracks down on speeding, following too close, improper lane changes, and failure to obey traffic signs.

Commercial motor vehicle operators will also be checked for various licensing requirements and other regulations.

The State Patrol program runs through Saturday.

Last year large-truck crashes dropped 21 percent compared with 2008 and deaths dropped nearly 12 percent.
