Volvo Trucks North America said it will sponsor the Owner-Operators Independent Drivers Association's (OOIDA) Safe Driving Award Program. The program recognizes and rewards OOIDA members for their safe,
accident-free years of commercial vehicle operation.
OOIDA has more than 156,000 members and represents the interests of owner-operators and professional drivers. All active OOIDA members are eligible for the award as long as they have not had a preventable accident and drive a commercial vehicle as their primary occupation during the year the award is requested.
Scott Kress, Volvo senior vice president of sales and marketing, said, "Safety has been a Volvo core value for 80 years now, and our experience tells us the driver is far and away the most important factor in truck safety.
"Owner-operators are also highly visible to the American public. Volvo thinks it is important to spotlight OOIDA members' achievements and to encourage other drivers - whether in trucks or passenger vehicles - to emulate them," said Kress.
Volvo also sponsors the America's Road Team national highway safety outreach program.
