We need to hear from people who want to improve driver training

Dear Editor,

The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) has been working for many years to get in place standards for the training of entry-level truck drivers, as well as standards for operating a school and standards for instructors they employ within the province of Ontario.

We have heard the industry cry for better-trained, entry-level drivers in this province, and the result is safer roads for us all.

The TTSAO does not want to see any schools close, only elevate their standards to give you the level of drivers you deserve.

Our organization has been working with the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities and is finally getting to a point where we can see light at the end of the tunnel.

We have been asked by the minister of colleges and universities to obtain letters from companies and individuals stating that industry wants and supports improvements in the training of entry level drivers.

Please help us to help you, the industry, with your letters of support from your organization as well as your insurance carriers. Your letters can be mailed to: TTSAO, 595 Middlefield Rd., Unit 10, Scarborough, Ont., M1V 3S2 or E-mail us at adanac@globalcon.com .

Wayne Campbell

President, TTSAO
