ARKANSAS ROAD TEAM
A select group of professional drivers, the Arkansas Road Team is committed to improving highway safety. This complimentary outreach program of the Arkansas Trucking Association serves to educate the motoring public – especially younger drivers – on safe driving. Through visits to schools and events around the state, the Arkansas Road Team delivers their Share the Road program with hands-on illustrations and demonstrations on safe-driving best practices. Additionally, they act as ambassadors for the trucking industry through media appearances and presentations to civic organizations and other engagements. The Arkansas Road Team is comprised of drivers from ATA-member trucking companies. These industry professionals are available for appearances at no cost, schedule permitting, for Share the Road presentations and other educational events and promotions. Learn more about the Arkansas Road Team and the value they can bring to your school or event.
Delivered by the Arkansas Road Team, Share the Road presentations are custom-designed for each event and audience. Programs are generally geared toward driving-age students in groups of 20-25 and coincide with class periods of approximately 50 minutes each. Audiences learn valuable, lifesaving information on safe driving and get a hands-on, behind-the-wheel view of a professional driver. See what a Share the Road presentation looks like in this brief video. From a single class to an entire high school, or other safety-focused events, Share the Road presentations are offered at no cost.
