Driving competitions make good drivers betterMay 21, 2012 Safety
Driving competitions make good drivers better.
The competition events include driving skills and maneuvering tests, a pre-trip inspection and a written examination covering vehicle operation and federal safety regulations.
The driving competitions are more than a test of how well a driver can operate a vehicle – they are a significant safety program that challenges the best and safest drivers first at the local level, then the state level and finally at the national level.
The local events have wrapped up and state contests are beginning. The top finishers at the state levels advance to the national competition. This year the National Truck Driving Competition is August 7-11 in Minneapolis, MN.
Massachusetts is holding its state contest on May 20.
Watch upcoming issues of New Penn Pulse for updates on our champions using the driving competitions to sharpen their driving skills.
We wish the best to our safety champions. They make us all safer!
