Driver of the Year

Know an Outstanding Driver?

Each year, Ohio Trucking Association members are encouraged to nominate their safest drivers in hopes of walking away with the coveted Driver of the Year Super-Bowl style ring, allowing them to join the ranks of past Drivers of the Year. Each of the twelve finalists, as well as their company, is awarded a plaque in recognition of their outstanding career. These 12 finalists are chosen from a field of excellent nominees that are judged by individuals representing the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Driver of the Year nominees must be employed by an Ohio Trucking Association member company. The following aspects of the driver's career are examined during the application process: equipment driven; years with present employer and total years driving; details of preventable and non-preventable accidents; and participation in industry activities. Our 2018 Driver of the Year event will be held at the Grand Event Center in Columbus, Ohio on April 5, 2019.

Nominations are now closed; please contact Bradie Berry at or 614-545-4464 if you have questions.
