Charleston, W.V. – The West Virginia Trucking Association (WVTA) announced today their recognition and participation in in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week, which will be held October 18-24. During this week, law enforcement agencies throughout the country will engage in heightened traffic safety enforcement and education 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.”

ROANOKE, W.Va. — Representatives from around 35 companies involved in the state’s trucking industry gathered at Stonewall Wednesday to discuss the issues they face in the business.

Those attending the West Virginia Trucking Association‘s Annual Convention received a crash course on what they will need to know in the upcoming year.

“What we try to do is put together one day of education for our members,” said Janet Vineyard, president of the West Virginia Oil Marketers and Grocers Association, which represents the trucking association. “We’re trying to cover everything from driver training, to driver shortage, to federal laws, regulations, legal implications that you might have so you can do a better job. So, this is our day of refresh and retraining.”

Charleston, W.Va. (September 14, 2014) - The West Virginia Trucking Association (WVTA) announced today, that in honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Congressman Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.) recognized the state's professional truck drivers with the presentation of mementoes of appreciation to WVTA chairman Daniel Harmon and president Jan Vineyard.  

Senator Capito presented West Virginia's professional truck drivers with a flag that had been flown over the U.S. Capitol in their honor, while Congressman Jenkins presented the drivers with a letter of support and appreciation that was signed by all three members of the state's U.S. House of Representatives delegation. 

"West Virginia's truck drivers and other industry professionals keep our economy moving. They are on the road 365 days a year moving the products that we use on a daily basis," said Daniel Harmon, chairman of the WVTA. "We are so appreciative of our drivers and are absolutely thrilled that Senator Capito and Congressman Jenkins joined us in supporting and celebrating a week dedicated to them." 

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 13-19, 2015, is when the nation and the state takes time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in performing one of our economy's most demanding and important jobs. More than 34,000 trucking professionals in West Virginia keep our economy moving by delivering the food, raw materials, and other goods that we utilize in our everyday lives.
