Consolidated Freightways Driver Logs Four Million Accident-Free Miles
October 06, 2000
Consolidated Freightways driver Ralph C. Emerson, Kingsport, TN, has logged 4 million accident-free miles in his 43-year career with the company.
To commemorate the milestone, the company has dedicated a specially outfitted tractor with Emerson’s name and gold stripes emblazoned on both sides. The tractor also features four gold stars on the air deflector and on each side of the tractor — each representing 1 million accident-free miles.
Emerson is the third CF employee to record 4 million accident-free miles, the equivalent of driving around the world 160 times.
