ATA has holiday reminders for travelers

ARLINGTON, VA – In advance of one of the busiest times of year for highway travel, the American Trucking Associations has released some holiday reminders for drivers.

ATA is urging the motoring public to slow down, stay focused, and watch out for trucks’ blind sides.

The association has released a public service announcement addressed to the more than 99 million motorists are expected to be traveling between now and the year-end.

Among the tips: Do not cut in front of large trucks, and be aware of truck blind spots

“As a professional truck driver, I see literally thousands of other drivers each and every day,” said Thomas Miller, an America’s Road Team Captain and professional driver with Prime, Inc. “A lot of that behavior is nice, but too often I’d like to hand out some coal to some people – people driving too fast or who won’t put their phone down. We all need to do our part to keep the roads safe this holiday season.”
