Professional Werner driver Dennis Brown believes in determination, hard work and earning what you get. It is no surprise then that his own commitment and work ethic earned him a 2 million accident-free miles award at the Sept. 18 Third Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.
Brown, a Werner driver since 1996, had this advice for new drivers: “Stay back away from people and give them plenty of room.”
As for his own personal safety motto, it’s all about being in control.
“Don’t let other drivers around you get you stressed,” he said. “No load or paycheck is worth risking your life or anyone else’s.”
When not on the road, the Ashley, Illinois, native stays busy with a family that includes six children, 23 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
