Nevada Motor Transport Association Awards

At last night’s Nevada Motor Transport Association annual convention we got to see two trucking professionals receive the Driver of the Year and Safety Director of the Year for 2009.  I wanted to take an opportunity here on our blog at Nevada Trucking Law to again congratulate these gentlemen.

Trucking Trophy Ralph Covington of TruLine Trucking was named NMTA’s Driver of the Year.  Ralph has been driving for over 31 years.  He has not had one single accident in the 3.5 million miles that he has driven.  He has won the TruLine Driver of the Year three times since starting at the company in 1994.  It is hard-working professionals like these who often do not come to our attention and it was an honor to be there when he was given his Award by his employer Paul Truman at last night’s banquet.

Also honored at the same event was Ray Roach.  He has been driving professionally since 1953.  He worked for Consolidated Freightways and began a myriad of safety programs that led Consolidated Freightways to win the Safety Company of the Year from the City of Sparks.  For many years he organized the NMTA drivers’ rodeo and was responsible for promoting the Share the Road “No-Zone” program.  Both these gentlemen were well deserving of their Awards and it was a privilege and honor to have witnessed that presentation.  We wish both these gentlemen the best of luck in all their future endeavors as they continue to contribute to the trucking industry in Nevada.
