CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is looking for a new team of Road Knights.
The association has put out the call for trucking industry ambassadors to serve a two-year term from 2015-2016. Knights step out of the cab once or twice a month to raise awareness of how to share the road with trucks and to promote career opportunities within the industry.
The deadline to nominate drivers is Dec. 1, 2014.
“The drivers who make up the AMTA Road Knights team put a human face on the trucking industry and help encourage young people and adult career seekers to consider a career in the industry,” says Richard Warnock, president and CEO, AMTA. “They also play a vital role in delivering life-saving information about how to share the road with commercial vehicles.”
The AMTA says about one or two days a month is required of Road Knights. The program is open to both company drivers and owner/operators.
“Road Knights give voice to their peers – safety minded transport drivers who are committed to making our roads safer and showcasing the professionalism of the trucking industry,” the AMTA announced.
