TORONTO, Ont. — APPS Transport driver Guy Broderick was named the 2010 OTA/Volvo Trucks Canada Ontario Truck Driver of the Year at the association’s convention last week.
Just moments before being named Driver of the Year, Broderick addressed the association about the important and fulfilling role OTA Road Knights play in promoting the industry. Broderick is a member of the current Road Knights team and as such, visits schools and career events and provides media interviews all to promote the trucking industry and road safety.
Broderick has a clean driving record and takes safety seriously, organizers of the event said. Volvo’s Brent Weary presented the award.
“Safety is always my number one priority,” said Broderick. “I truly enjoy promoting safety initiatives and educating the public on how together, we can improve road safety.”
“Guy is an exemplary professional driver, both on and off the road,” added OTA president David Bradley. “He should be proud of the numerous accomplishments that earned him this prestigious award.”
Broderick has nearly three million accident-free kilometres to his credit. He has been trucking for 25 years and is also active within his Cambridge community, where he’s a softball coach and fundraiser.
