FORT SMITH, Ark., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, ABF ® driver Scott Harris has earned recognition as New York Driver of the Year from the New York State Motor Truck Association. Harris earned the recognition during the organization's Safety and Education Symposium March 26 in Albany, New York.

A five-time winner of the New York State Driving Championships, Harris's distinguished career as a professional driver includes winning numerous safe driving awards. He is a past winner of the American Trucking Associations National Championships and a former ATA National Driver of the Year.  Harris has driven for ABF for nearly 30 years, accumulating more than 30,000 hours and three million miles without a preventable accident. Harris operates from the ABF service center in Albany.

"Scott has made winning championships as routine as the professionalism he demonstrates each time he is behind the wheel of his truck. All of us at ABF are extremely proud to have Scott Harris setting an example for not just ABF drivers but all the professional drivers on the road," said Sam Cates, ABF safety and security director.

The New York State Motor Truck Association is a nonprofit trade association formed to promote and protect the interests of the trucking industry in New York. It is an affiliate of the American Trucking Associations.
