Potter, selected as a model cargo driver… Top 100 recipients receive up to 5 million won

Korea Expressway Corporation announced on the 30th that it will select ‘exemplary cargo drivers in 2022’ to encourage voluntary and safe driving of truck drivers.

The model cargo driver selection, which has been implemented every year since 2016, is a system that rewards drivers who drive less frequently on the digital tachograph (DTG).

The selected target is drivers of commercial trucks exceeding 1 ton equipped with a high-pass terminal, and can apply on the Korea Expressway Corporation toll website. You can also apply by visiting a highway rest area or the Korea Transportation Safety Authority inspection office.

Applicants must practice safe driving by September 30th and upload the DTG record (over 80 days of operation) to the Korea Transportation Safety Authority website or visit the DTG inspection center to submit.

By scoring the number of dangerous driving, the top 100 people who practiced exemplary driving will be rewarded from 300,000 won to a maximum of 5 million won.

According to the Korea Highway Corporation, the average number of dangerous driving of the model cargo drivers selected last year was 6.7. The figure was only 20% of the average of all truck drivers (34.1 times), and the selection of exemplary truck drivers had a positive effect on the formation of safe driving habits, the Korea Highway Corporation explained.

From this year, the selection of exemplary freight drivers for users of ‘Atlan Truck’, a freight car navigation application (app), will be conducted separately. If you run the app and drive without a separate proof process such as DTG submission, your driving score is automatically counted.

“The selection of exemplary truck drivers is leading to safe driving of truck drivers,” said an official from the Korea Highway Corporation.
