Hero of the Highway
The Hero of the Highway program is intended to provide recognition for those professional drivers and others who go beyond their everyday jobs and accomplish good deeds, ranging from random acts of kindness such as helping a stranded motorist to acts of extreme heroism such as pulling someone from a burning vehicle or administering CPR. So often, these acts of courtesy and kindness happen in the dark of night or the isolation of rural highway. Click here for a nomination form.
