Road Team Captain James says, “I sincerely welcome this opportunity to be a part of the ATA Road Team. I’ve learned from my earliest days of driving that safety is the number one ‘Driving Concern’ for each and every single one of us.”
America’s Road Team was created in 1986 by the ATA to represent the trucking industry. Since it was established, it has educated millions of drivers about the trucking industry’s safety record, necessity and professionalism. Captains are judged on their ability to express their knowledge of the industry, their skills in effective communication about safety and transportation, and their overall safe-driving record. Sponsored by Volvo Trucks, Road Team Captains, with support from their companies, dedicate a few days each month to attend industry events, speak at schools or meet policymakers on behalf of the trucking industry.
