TORONTO, Ont. — The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) is once again searching for nominations for its revered Road Knights Team, a collection of some of the “best and brightest” drivers in the province charged with represent the industry in public.
Sponsored by the OTA Allied Trades Division, OTA Road Knights are a group of Ontario professional truck drivers who serve as ambassadors throughout the community, travelling the province to speak to community groups, safety organizations, schools, car clubs, and the like.
“They play a key role in enhancing public understanding of how to safely share the road with a truck, the professionalism of truck drivers, the critical role played by the industry and the numerous careers that the industry offers,” the OTA said in a release.
A selection panel made up of industry experts from government, safety, media and enforcement groups will select the Road Knights 2013-2014 team after nominations have been received. The selection process will take place in February and will involve a personal interview and presentation before the panel of judges. Road Knights serve a two-year term and will undergo media and public speaking training following the selection process.
