New award for trucking bravery

The ATA and Continental Tyres recently held a competition to name their new trucking bravery award, and have announced that it will be called the Highway Guardian Award. The winning entry was lodged by Anthony Harle, who will receive a set of Continental tyres for his car or ute.

The aim of this award is to acknowledge acts of bravery by Australian truck drivers. It will be presented as part of the National Trucking Industry Awards at the Australian Trucking Convention, which will be held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra, from 25-28 May.

National Sales Manager Truck Tyres for Continental Tyres Australia, Roy Norris, said the Highway Guardian reflects the very best qualities of Australia’s truck drivers including the willingness to step out of the cab and save lives, whether it’s at the scene of a road accident or a natural disaster like the ones we saw earlier this year.
“Continental Tyres Australia are proud to be involved with this new award,” he said.

To be eligible for this award, nominees must be full-time professional employee drivers, or truck owner/operators currently working as a local, medium or long distance driver in Australia; and must be doing their job at the time of the incident which is the subject of the nomination.

The winner of the Highway Guardian Award will receive $5000 in cash from Continental Tyres Australia.
