Volvo Trucks North America will once again sponsor the safety outreach program, America’s Road Team, in 2011, the truck maker announced.
The program enlists professional drivers with outstanding records to advocate safe driving in public forums.
Team members are referred to as captains, many of whom may have driven millions of accident-free miles.
Drivers often use Volvo VN tractors to transport the Road Team trailer for the program’s founder, the American Trucking Associations.
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.
