A Canadian is among the 19 truckers chosen by the American Trucking Associations as a captain of the 2013-2014 America’s Road Team. The lone Canadian driver was Trimac Transportation’s Dale Williams, Centerville, Ala.
The premier group of professional truck drivers, all with millions of accident-free miles, will spend the next two years representing the trucking industry and delivering its highway safety message to the motoring public.
“America’s Road Team represents the best our industry has to offer: pride, professionalism and dedication to making our highways safer for all who travel them,” ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said. “Today as we honor our newest captains, I want to congratulate not just these fine individuals, but all those hardworking drivers who strive every day to deliver America’s most essential goods safely and efficiently.”
The Road Team Captains also advocate safety to those within the industry at terminals and truck stops. They speak with fellow drivers, driver training students and corporate safety officers. They also have the opportunity to present trucking and safety issues before our public officials, at the national, state and local levels.
