As a major dedicated trucking company, we at Veltri pride ourselves on our specialization in DE regional trucking, NJ regional trucking, and PA regional trucking. But it’s not just the excellent work we provide that defines us–it’s also our dedication to safe driving practices.
Part of our commitment to safe driving involves hiring safe, experienced drivers. Another part is keeping ourselves informed and aware about the changing world, its technologies, and how to keep a firm vision on our passion: dedicated trucking. In addition to practicing safe driving, Veltri encourages others to raise awareness about common driving distractions.
Recent reports released by the National Highway Safety Administration highlight startling distracted driving statistics. An accident is 23x more likely while texting while driving, and sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds (at 55 MPH, this is the equivalent to blindly driving the length of a football field).
We’re a Pennsylvania trucking company, so we’re very aware how large our rigs can get. That being said, we’re particularly aware of how important safe driving practices are, and we make sure to adhere to these high standards.
