ATA announces newest members of its trucking safety advocacy team
Truckers who have completed driver safety courses may be more likely to avoid accidents and maintain a clean record. Operators who can embody these characteristics can gain recognition from prestigious organizations in their industry, such as the American Trucking Associations (ATA).
This week, ATA officials announced the most recent additions to America's Road Team. A total of 18 drivers who have traveled more than 1 million miles without an accident were named captains of this group.
These individuals were selected by a panel of judges based on their status as an employee of an ATA member as well as their demonstrable commitment to safety and professionalism in their field. The captains will be tasked with traveling the country and addressing these issues in speeches to community groups, media outlets, public officials and members of their industry.
According to the ATA, America's Road Team - which was established in 1986 in partnership with Volvo Trucks North America - is intended to bring together individuals who can serve as an example of professionalism and teamwork in the transportation field.
