Tourist alert
Summer is here, and the highways are full of vacationers, especially this holiday weekend. They are sometimes lost, frequently tired and often distracted.

To stay safe, remember your defensive driving skills and give the other guy a break.

Reddaway’s reigning champ

Tom Petrella Reddaway Account Manager, Tom Petrella ( Orange, CA) is known by customers and co-workers alike as an indispensible element to their business. Currently celebrating his fourteenth year with Reddaway, Tom's long career in Southern California has been marked with an exceptional track record of service.

Tom's supervisor--Area Sales Director, Jim Allgaier--explains that Tom's hard work and stand-out attitude combine to make him an all-star in the office.

"Tom has been a mainstay of the Reddaway SoCal Team for many years, building a reputation that's rarely matched," said Jim. "He's grown consistently year in and year out."

In addition to being a champion in the office, Tom recently became a champion in another field. This past March, he was the proud winner of the El Prado Men's Golf Club's President's Cup Golf Tournament. As one of 64 competitors, Tom lit up the links and emerged from the month-long tournament with the first place trophy.

"As long as I can remember, golf has been a given around my house," said Tom. "My dad was a good player. He introduced me to the game. I played a lot of golf with him over the years and learned more than just golf."

Jim Allgaier reported that the same spirit that propels Tom on the golf links propels him in the workplace.

"Tom's upbeat personality and pride in his every day work ethic both on and off the job are a tribute to what Reddaway represents--quality, hard work, and success," said Jim Allgaier. "He’s a true professional both on and off the field."
Reddaway drivers compete in California and Arizona State Truck Driving Championships

Reddaway drivers compete

Pictured above (L/R): Bobby Ramirez, Eddie Carraud, Tracy Dewees, Miguel Vargas, and Jamie Corona at Pomona Fairplex, Pomona, CA.

On Saturday, April 20, the Southern California Regional Truck Driving Championships were held in sunny Pomona, CA, and Reddaway made its presence felt. With over 400 professional drivers competing, 2 of the 8 Reddaway competitors emerged with first place trophies in their class.

Los Angeles linehaul driver, Tracy Dewees, walked away with the first place award in the twins category, while Los Angeles pickup and delivery driver, Edmond Carraud took first in the 4-axle. With this win, both drivers qualified to attend the 2013 California State Championships on May 19 in Sacramento where despite valiant attempts, they missed being able to qualify for the annual National Truck Driving Championships.

These regional and state safety competitions consist of driven obstacle courses, written examinations, and pre-trip inspections to test driver knowledge, skill, and abilities. In order to compete, each driver must go the entire year prior without an accident.

"Even though we only had two of our drivers place in the Southern California Regional Truck Driving Championships, all of our drivers who competed that day were in fact winners," said Dave Yonemoto, Reddaway Director of Safety.

"In order to qualify to compete, they had to drive the entire year without an accident. And many of them have driven many years without an accident. All of them were winners in the real competition, operating safely on our highways."

Congratulations to Tracy, Edmond, and to all the Reddaway professional drivers who competed in their state truck driving safety events!
