On September 15, Downs Energy and other Allied Members with the California Trucking Association, spent the day at the Nipton Truck Scales for Truck Driver Appreciation Day. We handed out goodie bags and gift cards to over 700 drivers as they passed through the scales. The California Highway Patrol and Nevada Highway Patrol joined forces to educate drivers on inspections and log books. They also participated in handing out the gift bags. Our participation was a small token of our appreciation for the stellar efforts of all the hardworking drivers out there.
Truck Driver Appreciation Week is when the country takes the time to honor all the professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment, tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.5 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe.
We thank everyone that came out to help us support the drivers.
