Driver of the Year Banquet

April 5, 2019 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM (EDT)


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. 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 Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation.

Congratulations to our 2018 Driver of the Year Finalists!
