Hollard Trucking has launched its 2019 Hollard Highway Heroes campaign to find South Africa’s best truck driver.
Competitors will once again have to prove that they drive better than their peers in terms of speed, harsh braking and fatigue driving. The 2019 Highway Hero will take home R100 000.
This year’s Hollard Highway Heroes competition is open to any truck driver, irrespective of their insurer. This gives more drivers the opportunity to win big, and encourages thousands more to drive better – which amplifies the road safety benefit created by the competition.
“In previous years we’ve measured a 65-percent improvement in truck-driver behaviour during the competition. That’s huge – and what’s more, the drivers retain their good driving habits long after the competition is over, and they inspire non-participating colleagues to also up their game on the road,” says Elka du Piesanie, the competition manager.
“The very definition of a hero is ‘an ordinary person who does extraordinary things’. The tagline for the 2019 Hollard Highway Heroes competition reflects that: ‘Rewarding the extraordinary’,” concludes Wayne Rautenbach, head of Hollard Trucking.
