The West Virginia Trucking Association, in conjunction with the  American Trucking Associations’ Share the Road highway safety program, released winter driving tips for motorists taking to the nation’s highways this holiday season.

“Everyone is busy this holiday season running last minute errands for our family celebrations or driving to faraway states to visit grandparents or friends, but the trucking industry wants all motorists to make safety their number one priority,” said West Virginia Trucking Association President, Jan Vineyard. “It’s easy to get caught up in the holiday spirit and forget to focus on safety, which is why we’re happy to provide these tips from professional truck drivers.”

More than 103 million Americans are expected to travel this holiday season, according to AAA. A higher volume of vehicles traveling side by side on roads in December and early January creates an increased need for adherence to safe-driving habits, especially when coupled with adverse driving conditions. Drivers should be well-aware of the uptick in congestion and plan trips accordingly.

Today, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued the following statement about the inclusion of a permanent hours-of-service restart fix in Congress' bipartisan Continuing Resolution:

"ATA thanks Congress for including what should be a permanent fix to the hours-of-service restart in this Continuing Resolution, and we look forward to its final passage into law to resolve this issue.  Reverting back to the pre-July 2013 restart shifts the emphasis back to safety by removing flawed data from the rulemaking process. The entire industry will now be able to comply with this rule thanks to a common sense approach championed by a bipartisan group of legislators. 

"While ATA sought the same for preempting states that have added redundant rest break requirements on top of the existing federal standard, ATA will continue to push hard for federal preemption of specific state laws when the 115th Congress convenes next month."

The West Virginia Trucking Association (WVTA) announced today their recognition and participation in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week, which is being conducted this week – October 16-22. Law enforcement agencies throughout the country will engage in heightened traffic safety enforcement and education this week aimed at unsafe driving behaviors by both commercial motor vehicle drivers and car drivers. 

“Safety on our highways is our number one priority,” said Jan Vineyard, president of the West Virginia Trucking Association. “We practice and preach safe driving techniques to our commercial drivers on a daily basis and Operation Safe Driver Week allows us to reinforce that message with not only our members but also the public. Education is just as important as enforcement when it comes to developing safe driving habits.”
