Are your drivers worthy of Hall of Fame honour?

There’s R20 000 to be won by the commercial vehicle driver judged to be South Africa’s best.

Road safety is an integral part of transport operations and, with this in mind, MasterDrive – in association with TruckX 2017 –launched a Hall of Fame initiative to honour the country’s top commercial truck drivers.

Eugene Herbert, managing director of MasterDrive – one of South Africa’s top driving academies – says driver behaviour significantly influences risk management. Traffic accidents cost South Africa about R300-billion annually.

“By working to elevate levels of road safety and encouraging drivers to set good examples to others, accident rates could be significantly reduced,” he says.

The aim of the Hall of Fame is to recognise and reward drivers who adhere to traffic regulations; who drive responsibly and safely; and set good examples for their peers and other road users.

“It’s up to employers at transport companies to nominate them,” says Herbert. “They know who their best drivers are – the men and women who they can rely on to always drive safely, courteously and responsibly. We want to recognise and reward those heroes.”

Drivers inducted will be awarded certificates at the TruckX 2017 Conference and Expo to be held on July 12 and 13 at Kyalami Race Track, in Johannesburg, with the driver judged the best in terms of an assessment by MasterDrive winning R20 000.
