The Road Ahead: Passion for Safety
The bright lights of Las Vegas don’t distract FedEx Freight City Driver Rebecca Parker. With an eight-year safe driving record at FedEx Freight, she is focused on the road — and a job she loves.
"Ten years ago I applied to FedEx and couldn’t have asked for a better job. It’s perfect for a single mom. I have full benefits, can support my kids, and I’m home at night and on holidays. I’m always telling other moms that FedEx has a free truck driving training program.
"I also use my FedEx Freight trailer to help local nonprofits deliver everything from back-to-school supplies to food for the homeless when our location participates in these drives. I love that the company gives us the tools to make a real impact in our communities.
"The one thing I believe in wholeheartedly is safety. As a certified Road Test Observer and Road Test Coach, I train new team members to observe FedEx driver safety guidelines and learn safe habits. I love that FedEx puts safety first above all for its drivers, its communities and through the programs that it supports."
Safe streets. Safe kids. Watch kids around the word express the importance of safety to their lives. FedEx vehicles share the road, and we share the responsibility to keep our streets safe. Since 2000, our team members have worked with Safe Kids Worldwide to create more walkable communities. Together, we conduct research, educate drivers and kids and make physical improvements to the places where child pedestrians are most at risk.
