NTTC Zero Distractions Campaign Announces Restructuring & Initial Pledge Partners 

NTTC is announcing a change of structure for Zero Distractions, its public safety campaign to promote safe and aware driving.  Three NTTC member companies have committed to pledging their support for the initiative, with many more soon to follow.

 

“Zero Distractions is more than an effort to change driver behavior behind the wheel, it is an effort to change society’s view on the dangers of driving distracted, whatever form that may be,” said Dave Edmondson, Vice President of Safety & Compliance of J&M Tank Lines, Inc.

 

Zero Distractions was founded in 2018 through the dedication of Todd Stine, NTTC's 2016-2017 Professional Tank Truck Driver of the Year, along with NTTC's Staff and Safety & Security Council. The initial goal was to build awareness for distracted driving while changing driver and passenger behavior through pledges to have zero distractions while driving.

 

Zero Distractions has now been restructured to take pledges from companies, referred to as Pledge Partners, rather than individual drivers. Zero Distractions will provide tools and resources for Pledge Partners for effective and direct outreach to their drivers through ambassadors. These Pledge Partners are recognized on the web page for their commitment to safe driving practices within their company culture. The first three Pledge Partners are K-Limited Carrier, J&M Tank Lines, and Florida Rock & Tank Lines.

 

“Driving while distracted is careless and reckless. Our goal as we continue to grow the Zero Distractions campaign is to continue to build awareness by educating all drivers through our ambassador program on focused, distraction-free driving and ultimately reduce the tragedies that are happening on the roadways every single day,” said Candi Coate, Vice President of Safety and Regulatory Compliance at K-Limited Carrier, Ltd.

 

Participation in the Zero Distractions campaign is not limited to NTTC members. Additional information on Zero Distractions can be found on the NTTC website at https://tanktruck.org/Zero-Distractions.aspx.
