Press Release: Reddaway Driver Scott Bunn Celebrates 3 Million Mile Safety Milestone

TUALATIN, Ore., Nov. 20, 2015 – (NASDAQ: YRCW) – Reddaway professional driver Scott Bunn recently achieved the remarkable feat of surpassing 3 million consecutive miles without a preventable collision. Scott is the first Reddaway driver--so far--to reach this incredible milestone equal to driving across the United States, coast-to-coast, more than 1,000 times in a row or twelve round trips from the earth to the moon in a row. Scott’s accomplishment requires focus and a lifetime commitment to safety.

Reddaway is celebrating Scott’s achievement with an award ceremony hosted by Reddaway CEO and President T. J. O’Connor and the Reno Team at our Reno terminal (1875 Industrial Way, Sparks, NV) on Monday, Nov. 30 from 11:30-2:30 p.m. Scott will be greeted by family, friends and co-workers and presented with a celebratory plaque, 3-million miler ring, a commemorative 3-million miler Carhartt jacket designed for Nevada’s cold winters, custom hat and patches, certificate of extraordinary achievement as well as custom 3-million-miler decals for his truck.

Also in attendance at the safety celebration will be Nevada's State Senator Don Gustavson; Assemblyman Ira Hansen; a representative from Senator Heller's office; and Bob Gastonguay from Congressman Mark Amodei's office in Reno. Certificates of Recognition will be presented to Scott Bunn to recognize his lifetime commitment to safety. 

“When it comes to driving, the most important measure of success is safety, and Reddaway driver Scott Bunn has clearly achieved the highest level of success. We strive always to make every customer delivery on time and as expected but above all else, every delivery has to be made safely. This is something Scott has achieved for over 30 years and three million miles. Congratulations on behalf of everyone at Reddaway,” shared T.J. O’Connor, CEO and President of Reddaway.

Scott Bunn has diesel fuel in his blood. He has driven trucks since he was 16 when he took an after-school job and learned to drive trucks from his co-workers. He drove for several other companies before coming to the Reddaway Reno terminal in 1983 where he’s spent his entire career.

“We’ve been happy to make the most of Scott’s safety knowledge and focus,” explained Todd Bosecker, Reno Terminal Manager. “He has been our primary driver-trainer at the Reno terminal for many years and recently took on an even larger role by training other Reddaway trainers. His knowledge of the equipment and safe work practices make him a tremendous asset. He helps build safety and success not just here in our terminal but throughout our company.”

"Reaching three million safe miles is gratifying,” Scott said. “It's a goal that's so rarely realized, and it makes you feel good to be recognized for your accomplishments. It feels almost like I earned a Doctorate Degree in driving … but without the student loans."

His secret for reaching three million consecutive miles without a preventable collision is to "always have good trucks underneath me and never get in a hurry. You just take it one mile at a time."
