Road Team

Tennessee’s Road Team is a free statewide highway safety education program sponsored by the Tennessee Trucking Foundation in partnership with Bridgestone. The Road Team is composed of a small group of professional truck drivers with superior driving records and a desire to spread the word about safety on the highway.

Road Team Captains are professional drivers who take the message of highway safety all across Tennessee. “This is an outstanding group of professional drivers,” said Dave Huneryager, President & CEO of the Tennessee Trucking Association. “They are representative of the exceptional men and women in our industry.”

Road Team Captains

Many with more than one million miles of accident-free driving — take a few days each month to present at high schools and safety events. They can also bring the NO-ZONE tractor-trailer to the schools they visit, if desired. Students are allowed to sit in the cab and experience the size of the vehicle while learning about the truck’s blind spots, stopping distances and other limitations of large vehicles. Road Team Captains stress the need for all motorists to demonstrate professionalism and courtesy on the road. They reinforce good safety habits such as always buckling safety belts, never drinking and driving, avoiding aggressive driving. They also discuss the importance of trucking in our nation’s economy and the opportunities presented by a career in transportation.
