We’ve received many awards over the years, including the “Supplier Excellence Award” and the “Best in Class” Truckload/Milk Run Carrier. However, the Carter Express team is most proud of our safety awards. Carter has been ranked first in the nation for safety in the 50-99.99 Million Miles Class by the Truckload Carrier Association multiple times and we have one of the lowest accident ratios in the nation. Educating drivers about how to drive safely and defensively is our priority, which is why we’re also sharing this list of safety resources for truck drivers with you. We hope that together, we can make the roads a safer place for everyone.
Share the Road
This is a highway safety program created by the American Trucking Association and uses million-mile safe drivers to share important safety tips with the media, general public and to public officials through multiple outlets. Check out their Facebook page and website where they regularly share safety tips for truckers and motorists.
Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance
CVSA has a number of training and webinar resources on their website. They set the standard for nationwide inspections and also have enforcement and awareness programs, including International Roadcheck and Operation Safe Driver. You can always find information about their programs or upcoming nationwide roadside inspections on their website or Facebook.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
All truckers should know that FMCSA is the organization that regulates and oversees the transportation industry and the safety of commercial motor vehicles. Their website has all the information you need do know about being compliant as well as the most current regulations in trucking. You’ll also find helpful safety information including this list of tips for truck and bus drivers.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
While the U.S. Department of Transportation’s campaign against distracted driving is geared toward general motorists, there’s a lot of great information that all drivers can benefit from. In addition to discussing distracted driving, the website also shares important information about the hazards of speeding and driving drowsy, and the importance of wearing your seat belt.
