Truck Driver Appreciation Week Includes Towing Operators

Washington, DC (PressExposure) November 03, 2009 -- The Towing and Recovery Association of America, in conjunction with its ongoing effort to improve the image of towers and the towing industry to the general public, would like to recognize the hard working men and women of the towing and recovery industry. This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week for 2009 and will be celebrated through November 7.

During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, America takes the time to honor truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs.

The American Trucking Association asks everyone to join them in celebrating the men and women across the country who work hard every day to deliver the Good Stuff!

According to ATA, there are over 3.5 million professional truck drivers nationwide, who log more than 432 billion miles per year. Trucks delivered 10.7 billion tons of freight in 2007, almost 70% of total U.S. freight tonnage.

There are also hundreds of thousands of men and women who risk their lives in the line of service across the country every day in the towing and recovery industry and because many are truck operators TRAA would like to acknowledge them during this great week of honor for all truck operators in all industries.

NTDAW seeks to highlight that professional truck drivers are more essential to the national economy than ever before, delivering their loads safely and professionally.
