Volvo sponsors OOIDA program

| 10/12/2007

Volvo Trucks North America is stepping in to sponsor OOIDA’s Safe Driving Awards Program. The program recognizes and rewards members of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association for their safe, accident-free years of commercial vehicle operation.

All active OOIDA members are eligible for the award, which includes one Safe Driving Award patch and one certificate, 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.

“Volvo Trucks North America is proud to support OOIDA’s recognition of its members’ contributions to highway safety,” says Scott Kress, Volvo senior vice president of sales and marketing.

“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.”
