Holland Driver Warren Clark Reaches Elite Safety Milestone

Stocks in this article: YRCW

HOLLAND, Mich., March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: YRCW) – Holland is proud to announce that professional driver Warren Clark has reached the rare safety milestone of driving three million consecutive miles without a preventable accident. This makes him one of just two active Holland drivers to have achieved this elite status.

Warren Clark, 63, has been driving for Holland since 1979, and currently operates a line haul route out of the Chattanooga, TN service center. His route takes him to and from Kentucky five times a week, travelling approximately 560 miles each round-trip.

"His accomplishment is truly an exceptional one," said Holland President Mike Naatz. "Warren's commitment to safety and professionalism is something that we at Holland are extremely proud of and grateful for."

To give this feat some perspective, three million miles is the equivalent to safely making six round trips to the moon or over 116 circumnavigations of Earth.

On Thursday, February 23, Warren was honored for his achievement by a law enforcement escort to the facility followed by a celebratory event with family, friends, and co-workers.

In attendance were Holland President Mike Naatz and Vice President of Operations Scott Ware who presented Warren with several awards for his achievement, including a commemorative plaque, a three million miler leather jacket and ring. His tractor now proudly displays the three million mile emblem.

Warren described the event as "the best day of my career." Over that long career, he said the key to his safety success has been simple -- patience, courtesy, and awareness.

Despite his 33-year career with Holland, Warren Clark shows no signs of slowing. He says that he looks forward to the day he reaches his next milestone--four million consecutive miles accident-free.
