Next week is Truck Driver Appreciation Week!  We are thrilled that Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has proclaimed next week to be Truck Driver Appreciation Week in West Virginia and will be presenting the proclamation to Pitt Ohio Driver Charles Randolph on Tuesday, September 13th. Randolph, who just won his class of competition at the National Truck Driving Championships, will accept the proclamation on behalf of all of our wonderful West Virginia truck drivers!

Law enforcement agencies across the U.S. will conduct roadside inspections on large trucks and buses to identify out-of-adjustment brakes, brake-system and anti-lock braking system (ABS) violations as part of the CVSA’s Brake Safety Week, an annual outreach and enforcement campaign designed to improve commercial motor vehicle (CMV) brake safety.

CVSA is made up of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies nationwide.

The American Trucking Association's (ATA) Share the Road Program, in conjunction with the West Virginia Trucking Association, is launching the Share the Road Instructional Video to demonstrate safe-driving techniques ahead of a busy Labor Day weekend. 

"With one of the biggest travel weekends of the year coming up, professional truck drivers throughout the country are hoping that all motorists make safe-driving a priority," said Jan Vineyard, president of the West Virginia Trucking Association. "This video walks viewers through some of the most important elements of safety and explains how drivers can safely navigate around large trucks."

Vineyard said Share the Road's new instructional video addresses the 21st century's most prevalent dangerous driving habit – distracted driving – and explains the various ways that drivers may become distracted while driving. According to Share the Road professional truck drivers, eating, drinking or watching videos are activities that can be just as hazardous as texting and are done by motorists of all ages.
