Rise, Road Knights, Rise

Both the Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) and the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) have put out calls looking for 2013-2014 Road Knights.

Unlike a certain big screen Knight, the work is a little less challenging but no less important. Road Knights travel their respective province to speak to community groups, safety organizations, schools, and car clubs. 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 drivers who make up the AMTA Road Knights Team build bridges with the community. They are invaluable for putting a human face on the trucking industry and for delivering factual information about road safety and the vast array of careers that exist in the industry,” said AMTA President Dan Duckering of Duckering Transport.

The program is open to both company drivers and owner-operators, and both organizations provide training for giving speeches and presentations, as well as media training.
