Vision For Professional Drivers

The drivers of large commercial vehicles, have at least as much responsibility for the safety of the public as do airline pilots. All of us share the public roadways on a daily basis with professional truck drivers, operating 80,000 pound vehicles, all around us. Our belief is that professional truck drivers, who provide vital services to our overall economy, should be trained more like airline pilots, more healthy like airline pilots, more rested like airline pilots and paid more like airline pilots. We will work toward that vision tirelessly.
