Toughest 15 (plus 2) states for moving violations ahead of enforcement blitz kicking off July 12
There have been some notable additions to this category ranking of states’ enforcement departments since Overdrive last published them in 2018, which relied on calendar 2017 data to make the rankings. Since that time, too, moving violations — of the type that contribute to the Unsafe Driving category of the CSA program‘s Safety Measurement System — continue to represent a greater and greater share of total violations issued nationwide.
Since 2016 (see graph below), moving violations’ share has crept higher every single calendar. That continues something of a long-running trend nationally, though equipment-related violations still account for the lion’s share of violations with a national average of 75.8%, given longstanding practice among many states and, of course, the myriad of things that can go wrong with a truck.
