LEAWOOD, Kan., Feb. 27, 2019 — Murphy-Hoffman Company’s (MHC) Jerry Ingram received Lytx, Inc.’s Driver of the Year award for his outstanding record behind the wheel of his Ford F150 truck and Transit van. This is the third time in three years that an MHC driver has won the award.
Lytx presented awards to honorees, including Ingram, at the annual Lytx User Group Conference in San Diego. The awards acknowledge the best professional drivers and coaches using the Lytx DriveCam program who are committed to improving safety and efficiency behind the wheel and within their organization’s fleet.
Ingram maintains a clean driving record while working as a pickup and delivery driver at MHC Kenworth – Atlanta. He navigates through the third most aggressive city in the nation, and has driven approximately 99,500 miles in 30 months on routes through the Atlanta metropolitan area.
“Jerry’s commitment to safety goes beyond his personal demonstration of driving safely,” MHC Director of Safety and Risk Management Adrian O’Hara said. “He now trains all new Atlanta drivers on how to stay safe behind the road. He is deserving of this recognition, as he truly embodies MHC’s commitment to a world-class safety culture every time he gets behind the wheel.”
MHC first partnered with Lytx, a global leader in video telematics, in 2014, and has integrated DriveCam into every company vehicle to proactively take a stance on safer driving. This year, MHC congratulated a record 120 drivers with awards for receiving zero “coachable” events through the Lytx DriveCam program.
“These drivers and coaches exemplify the safest driving standards and behaviors found in the transportation industry today,” Lytx Vice President of Safety Services Del Lisk, Lytx said. “We congratulate the exceptional performance of all nominated drivers and coaches, and applaud them on their dedication to driver safety. Lytx remains steadfast to enhancing our Driver Safety Program, and will continue to honor those who have risen to the top of their profession.”
