Truck driver jobs gear up to go out on the road

Truck driver jobs are numerous and plentiful, and the top drivers are getting a chance to get out on the road.

The American Trucking Associations today announced the Captains of the 2011-2012 America’s Road Team. The premier group of million-mile, accident-free professional truck drivers will spend the next two years representing the trucking industry and delivering its highway safety message to the motoring public.

18 captains, with a collective 483 years behind the wheel and over 36.5 million accident- free miles, were selected from a group of 34 finalists who competed this week before a panel of judges from the trucking industry and related fields. The competition included a review of trucking industry expertise and a demonstration of their communication skills, combined with their community service and lifetime safety records.

“The America’s Road Team puts an impressive face behind the wheel,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves.
