Denis Day of Con-way Freight Celebrates 3 Million Continuous Accident Free Miles
We here at Trucker to Trucker, always want to give kudos to truck drivers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty or have set milestones within the industry. Such is the case with Dennis Day. As a driver for Con-Way transportation, Day has set a milestone that is hard to beat. But let us not take away from the official press announcement. Here it is in a condensed form.
Con-way Inc. announced, on October 8th, that Lawrenceville-based Driver Sales Representative Dennis Day has surpassed 3 million consecutive, accident-free miles. He becomes the ninth driver in the company's 33-year history to achieve this remarkable safe-driving milestone.
Day, who was honored at a special ceremony at the company's Norcross Service Center, previously earned recognition for surpassing 1 and 2 million safe-driving miles. He is a former Georgia Truck Driver of the Year and a Captain of the American Trucking Associations' Road Team.
Here is what he had to say: *"There's nothing more important than safety," said Day. "When you're driving a truck of this size, it takes precision, focus and constant attentiveness to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of the other motorists and pedestrians. It's an honor to be recognized for this achievement, and I hope this motivates other drivers to be as safe as possible on the road." *
Hats Off to Mr. Day
Anyone who can put 3 million miles on a big rig and have zero accidents over the course of that time, deserves the recognition he gets within the industry. Our hats off to him, and all of the other safe and accident free truckers, that continue to make the trucking industry one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today.
