Trucker's commitment to safe driving results in award

While many truckers in California do their best to maintain a driving record that is free of accidents or traffic violations, sometimes human error can get the best of anyone and require them to reassess their commitment to driving safely. Many trucking companies require that their drivers maintain a record that is relatively clear of major infractions by conducting background checks and requiring that they maintain a log of their travels. 

For one Minnesota truck driver, his commitment to driving safely is about more than maintaining a job. For him, trucking is something he is passionate about and he takes pride in being a part of the trucking industry. In what many experts are saying is relatively unheard of, the trucker recently reached an inspirational 4.6 million miles of accident-free driving on his trucking log. As such, the Minnesota Trucking Association awarded him with the "Driver of the Year" award for the state. 

The man's advice to other truckers is to stay vigilant in observing their surroundings. He encourages them to always abide by the posted speed limit and to adjust their speed for other conditions so they can effectively see ahead and recognize hazards before it is too late. 

If people have been the victims of a trucking accident, an attorney may be able to help them. With a legal professional guiding their way to compensation, people may be able to focus less on the time-consuming legalities surrounding their accident, and more on their recovery and healing.
