YRC Worldwide Inc. announced that 10 of its active professional drivers have surpassed four million miles of accident-free driving. All 10 drivers are with YRC, the largest subsidiary of YRC Worldwide. The drivers are Danny Ambrose, Tuttle, Okla.; Joe Brown, Memphis, Tenn.; Dennis Caldwell, Altoona, Iowa; Horace Crouch, Newark, Texas; Bobby Elrod, Chickamauga, Ga.; Royal Lincoln, Montgomery, Ill.; Thomas McClain, Toledo, Ohio; Paul Russell, Memphis, Tenn.; Robert Seeman, Lake Park, Ga.; and Richard Shreiner, Manheim, Pa.

“Most American passenger vehicles log about 12,000 miles a year,” said says Smid, president of YRC Inc. and chief operations officer of YRC Worldwide, based in Overland Park, Kan. “Each of these gentlemen drives nine to 10 times that much every year, over careers that span 30 to 40 years, all without preventable accidents.”

YRC Worldwide currently has nearly 2,500 active drivers with one million miles or more; nearly 600 drivers who have achieved two million miles or more; more than 70 drivers with three million miles or more; and one driver with more than five million miles of accident-free driving.

“Thousands of drivers have chosen to make a professional career at YRC, and these million milers are great representatives of the YRC team,” Smid says. “We strive to create a rewarding work environment that helps our drivers deliver on safety. These drivers are leaders in highway safety and customer service and have delivered on that commitment mile after mile, year after year.”
