Thank A Trucker: Thank a Veteran
Thank a trucker Thank a Veteran. This month we’re showing thanks to those who work tirelessly to make our country the best on Earth. If you are one of nearly 1 million military veterans now active in the truck sector and related fields of this country, on Friday, November 8, Sunbelt Finance wishes to remember while many Americans are planning to celebrate Veterans Day on Monday, November 11th. According to the Census Bureau, there are approximately 22 million U.S. military veterans. Nearly 9 million are working in the trucking and related sector. Many of the veterans are truck drivers. Most fleets actively recruit veterans for their drivers. A variety of initiatives have also been created to assist veterans in education and moving jobs.
Securing Our Roads and Safety
In the trucking industry, safety is not only an attitude — it’s a lifestyle. For a purpose that is more common to military veterans: there are repercussions for neglecting safety. Luckily, transitioning vets will have a familiar — and enduring— security commitment. The statistics verify it.
The American Trucking Associations report that between 2001 and 2010, the number of fatalities associated with trucking decreased by 28%. Due to improvements made by all vehicles, the number of truck-related injuries declined 39 percent over the same span. Trucks are less than half the average crash rates of other vehicles.
Given the 75% increase in the number of large registered trucks between 1991 and 2010, this estimate of safety improvement is even higher. The drivers of these trucks journey thousands of miles a day, meeting problems such as careless drivers and different weather.
A combination of factors, including improved equipment and technology, leads to safety improvements in the industry. Each driver ultimately prioritizes safety and runs a business that never sacrifices this initiative.
