On March 3rd, drivers from across Wisconsin were honored by the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association’s Annual President’s Safe Driving Banquet in Appleton, WI. WMCA established the President’s Safe Driver Club in 1996 to recognize safe, professional truck drivers in Wisconsin. A total of 26 Marten drivers were honored this year. In addition, this year Marten was proud that driver Manuel Ortiz was honored as the 2017 November Driver of the Month for his commitment to safety and his professionalism both on and off the road.
The President’s Safe Driver Award has the following criteria: driver must have 36 continuous months of service with the same employer, no accidents in the past (on or off duty), a clean Motor Vehicle Record with no citations (on or off duty), be a Wisconsin resident or dispatched out of a Wisconsin terminal and drive at least 10,000 Wisconsin miles per year.
