The American Trucking Associations is seeking nominations for professional truck drivers to serve on the 2011-2012 America’s Road Team.
Every two years, ATA searches for professional truck drivers—both men and women—willing to take time away from the cab of the truck to serve as a captain. As Road Team captains, these professional drivers take a few days each month to meet with the motoring public, the news media, students, transportation officials, and government leaders to demonstrate the trucking industry’s commitment to safety. In addition, Road Team captains appear at events ranging from driver safety meetings to National Truck Driving Championships.
“For over two decades, the America’s Road Team has represented the dedication of America’s 3.4 million professional truck drivers,” said Bill Graves, ATA president and chief executive officer. “By nominating drivers for the Road Team selection process, trucking companies are helping to spread the industry’s message of safety, essentiality, and professionalism.”
The America’s Road Team, sponsored by Volvo Trucks North America, is a national public outreach program led by a small group of professional truck drivers.
Since 1986, America’s Road Team captains have traveled the nation educating millions on the importance of safety, the essentiality of the industry and the need for pride and professionalism within trucking. By educating the motoring public, business and community leaders, professional truck drivers, public officials, and the media, America’s Road Team captains make a difference.
