Who We Are

FTA-RTFlorida’s Road Team is the cornerstone of FTA’s safety and public awareness program. Each professional truck driver on the Team is an example of trucking at its best—articulate, knowledgeable and dedicated. Each driver is selected for the Team on the basis of his or her safety record, leadership abilities, concern for the image of the trucking industry and commitment to continuous improvement. The Road Team drivers take a few days away from their work each month to travel and speak to various groups about highway safety and the trucking industry. These professionals speak to civic and traffic clubs, classrooms, media and local businesses across our state.

Our Road Team provides information on safe driving tips, sharing the road with trucks, hands-on experience with a tractor-trailer, career opportunities and facts on industry issues. Don’t miss your opportunity to nominate one of your professional drivers for a chance to join this special group of trucking ambassadors.

Take a moment to think about any civic gathering or opportunity that may exist in your community where a Road Team Member may serve as a presenter. The Road Team exists to carry the safety message to your community!
