AKRON, Ohio – Don’t let a heroic deed by a truck driver go unrecognized. The deadline is fast approaching for nominations for the 18th Annual Goodyear North America Highway Hero Award. Nominations must be received by Oct. 15.

“Through this program, we’ve heard many stories of bravery and selflessness,” says Mike Thomann of Goodyear.

“We believe that the general public, which too often sees a negative portrayal of truck drivers, needs to hear these stories as well.”

Nominations can be made by dialing the Goodyear Highway Hero Hotline at 1-800-627-2118 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday. The nomination form also is available on the program’s Web site at

An independent company receives and reviews all nominations to ensure the necessary criteria are met. n
