The American Trucking Associations announced it is seeking nominations for professional truck drivers to serve on the 2011-2012 America’s Road Team.
Every two years, ATA searches for professional truck drivers, both men and women, who are willing to take time away from the cab to serve as a Road Team Captain. To nominate a professional truck driver, read the eligibility requirements and fill out the nomination form found at www.americasroadteam.com.
As Road Team Captains, professional drivers take a few days each month to meet with the motoring public, news media, students, transportation officials and government leaders to demonstrate trucking’s commitment to safety. In addition, Captains appear at events ranging from driver safety meetings to National Truck Driving Championships to reinforce the importance of safety and professionalism.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
