C.R. England has awarded a Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 to company driver Devery Hope for showing improvement in Mile Per Gallon Average and Average Idle percentage for the first quarter 2012.
Hope was selected as the Harley-Davidson winner among five finalists. He has been with C.R. England since August 2010 and lives in Sacramento, Calif. His winning scores were 7.48 MPG and a 6.5 percent idle time. He was well above 5 tenths greater than his peers in both his fleet and the National Division.
The other finalists were Brad Middlemas, Container Division Driver; Robert Perryman, Dedicated Division independent contractor; Frederick Stadel, National Division independent contractor; and Dale Gibbons, Company Intermodal driver.
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.
