Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Trucking Foundation (TTF), the 501c3 charitable arm of the Tennessee Trucking Association (TTA), recently selected the 2014 Tennessee’s Road Team Captains.
Tennessee’s Road Team Captains are professional truck drivers who take the message of highway safety across Tennessee. The Road Team is a public education program designed to improve highway safety and educate motorists on how to safely share the road with large trucks.
The following finalists were selected to the 2014 Road Team:
David A. Baker, Milan Express, Milan, TN

Road Team Captains are available free of charge to speak to students and groups anywhere in Tennessee. Road Team Captains bring a tractor-trailer to presentations so participants may sit in the cab and experience the size of the vehicle while learning about safety issues such as blind spots (No-Zones) and safe passing techniques.
Tennessee Trucking Foundation’s mission is to save lives on Tennessee’s highways by educating all motorists on how to safely share the road with large trucks and commercial vehicles. Large trucks are a dominant part of the traffic stream and represent every 4th vehicle on the road.
