WINNIPEG, Man. — Laird Copeland, an owner/operator with Bison Transport has reached a major driving milestone in his career with Bison, having achieved two million consecutive accident-free driving miles. Laird has been with Bison since 1996 and says the key to his success is simple: “Take precautions, observe all possibilities of danger and avoid them.”

“Safety is a top priority at Bison Transport and it is with professional drivers like Laird that Bison has been named by the Truckload Carriers Association for the fifth consecutive year as having the lowest DOT (Department of Transportation) reportable accident rate in over the 100 million mile carrier category. We are proud to recognize Laird for his commitment to safety,” said Garth Pitzel, Bison’s director of safety and driver development.
