Every day, millions of Americans get behind the wheel to head out on the highway, with their sights set on a specific destination. Some of them are off to the store, some to school and some to their office building. For Minnesota’s professional truck drivers, their sights aren’t set on a certain end point, because they work on the highway.
The trucking industry is the backbone of our economy and our professional drivers are our industry’s heart. They are committed to safely delivering all the things that make our collective quality of life possible. Their commitment to safety is apparent in the consistent improvements in highway safety we have seen over the past decade.
Our trucks and truck drivers truly do move America forward.
