National Tank Truck Carriers
A truck driver’s office is the highway, so our industry has a vested interest in eliminating distracted driving. Federal laws already prohibit truck drivers from texting while driving, and most companies will terminate employees who are caught in violation of this regulation. The trucking world knows the dangers on the road, and we’ve taken steps to fight against them. But the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) organization doesn’t think that’s enough.
Highway Transport wants to help end distracted driving in ALL vehicles. Commit today that you will drive with Zero Distractions™. Highway Transport encourages everyone to not only take the pledge but download and sign the pledge. After printing and signing, mail your form to NTTC.
