Driver of the Year Mike J. Shares Holiday Roadway Safety Tips

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] This Thanksgiving weekend is expected to be one of the most heavily-trafficked in more than a decade, says AAA, with close to 49 million motorists taking to our roadways. With so many motorists out and about, including our own drivers operating throughout the holiday weekend, we can each do our part to keep roadways safe this season.

As a 2019 National Recycling & Waste Association’s Driver of the Year award recipient, Mike J.  shares his top safety tips for traveling the Thanksgiving holiday.

  1. Allow plenty of travel time.
  2. Check weather conditions before departing.
  3. Buckle up, and make sure your vehicle is ready for the journey.
  4. Avoid distractions such as phones and texting, adjusting a navigational device or unrestrained pets.

“On behalf of my 16,000 fellow drivers at Republic Services, I wish you and your loved ones safe travels and a Happy Thanksgiving!” - Mike J., Winder, GA
