Nominations are now open for TravelCenters of America’s 2019 Citizen Drivers program. The initiative is meant to honor truckers for their careers in trucking, along with their work outside the industry through good citizenship, safety, community involvement and leadership.
Anyone can nominate a driver for the award. Nomination forms, rules and additional information is available from TA online. TA will accept nominations through Sept. 30.
