It takes a talented driver to navigate a truck and trailer through Southern California traffic, but professional driver Robert Roper proves each day that it’s possible to stay safe in even the most challenging conditions.
Roper, honored for achieving 2 million safe driving miles at the Dec. 13 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony, was inspired to stay safe by his dispatcher.
“Safety is more than just a commitment. It’s a lifestyle – one inch, one foot, one yard and one mile at a time,” he said. “There will always be people who are going to test that.”
Roper, also known as Highlander by those who work with him, resides in Las Vegas, Nev. When not at work, he enjoys restoring classic cars, adding to his unique sword collection and performing in Renaissance fairs.
