June is National Safety Month. On Tuesday the American Trucking Association thanked the millions of professional truck drivers, dispatchers, technicians and other members of the trucking industry for their commitment to improving highway safety.

Portland, Oregon– June 08, 2016— “As a safety-first industry, the many hard-working dedicated members of the trucking industry deserve to be commended for their efforts to make our roads safer,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “Our industry spends more than $7 billion annually on safety-related training, technology and equipment – and that investment is paying off in a big way.”

ATA First Vice Chairman Kevin Burch, president of Jet Express, Inc. expressed that “ATA has been at the forefront of pushing for common-sense rules to improve safety. From pushing for the drug and alcohol clearinghouse rule and a mandate for electronic logging devices to calling on states to reduce speed limits and for a requirement for commercial vehicles to be electronically speed limited, ATA believes strong, data-supported rules will help us improve highway safety even more in the future.”
