The Americas Road Team is a program developed and supported by the American
Trucking Associations. The program annually selects about 10 professional
truck drivers out of thousands of applicants nationally to promote the
trucking industry. In choosing Road Team Captains, they look for candidates
that promote a professional image, have full knowledge and understanding
of the industry, posses a passion for safety, have a superior safety record,
and have the ability to speak and educate all sectors of the public. Road
Team functions include participating in newspaper interviews, radio talk
shows, television interviews, as well as speaking at community and company
functions, events, and meetings.
The Oregon Road Team program is identical to the Americas Road Team except
it is on a state level as opposed to a national level.
