April has come and gone quickly, but this month has yet again been busy for the J&M Family!
Distracted Driving Awareness Month
April was Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This month is designed to help educated and remind drivers to stay alert and engaged with the road. Distractions can include texting, looking at your GPS, eating/ drinking, and so much more. Always remember that it can wait. We want you and everyone else on the road to make it home safe.
Safe Driving Summit
J&M Tank Lines, Inc. announced our official partnership with the Lutzie 43 Foundation to help end distracted driving and impaired driving.
As partners, J&M’s drivers will serve as safe driving ambassadors, through the example they set through the 43 Key Seconds initiative. This initiative serves as a checklist for all motorists before they begin operating a motor vehicle of any kind. Ensuring a clear head, clear hands, clear eyes and clicking your seatbelt.
Thursday, March 31st, J&M participated in a Safe Driving Summit with Lutzie 43 and the Georgia Department of Transportation to help bring awareness to local teens about safe driving.
White House Visit
We were honored to have our CEO, Harold Sumerford Jr., and one of our drivers and America’s Road Team Captain, Darrien Henderson, as part of the nine drivers and nearly two dozen CEO’s to attend the White House lawn for a ceremony with members of Congress and Administration officials on April 4th. Those in attendance were there to recognize ATA’s recent approval as a registered apprenticeship sponsor by the U.S. Department of Labor.
Social Media Tour
J&M’s Social Media Team took a tour of our Georgia terminals in April. They had the opportunity to spend time at each terminal. Learning from terminal employees and face-to-face interaction with drivers. Meeting with the many people of J&M allows for us to share the J&M Family with others through social platforms.
We are looking forward to what the summer months have to offer!
