In honor of the upcoming National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (Aug. 21-27), Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is urging the industry to nominate a driver for the company’s Highway Hero program. The annual Highway Hero awards recognize professional drivers who place themselves in harm’s way to save someone else.
