Frito-Lay Says 'Thanks a Million' to Over-the-Road Drivers

PLANO, Texas -- PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America is recognizing 95 over-the-road (OTR) drivers who this year have reached the career milestone of driving more than 1 million, 2 million or 3 million miles accident-free.

"This week Frito-Lay celebrates the men and women who safely move our snacks across the country every day," said Bill Simkins, national fleet safety manager, Frito-Lay North America. "Driving 1 million or more accident-free miles is an incredible achievement, and we are grateful for their commitment to safety for themselves and for all the people with whom we share the road."

On average it takes a Frito-Lay OTR driver about 10 years to reach the 1 million mile mark. The company now has more than 500 active "Million Milers" on the roads daily, which represents nearly 40 percent of its U.S. drivers. Seven Million Milers have driven 3 million accident-free miles throughout their careers with Frito-Lay. Through the Million Milers program, and the company's extensive safety efforts, Frito-Lay has seen a 70-percent decline in collisions since 1999.

This year's class of "Million Milers," along with their families, was recognized by Frito-Lay's top executives at an annual gala at the company's national headquarters in Plano, Texas.
