    UPS’s Safest Driver Reaches Milestone Logging Over 4 Million Miles - Fox News

    United Parcel Service driver Ronald Sowder has driven his big brown truck the equivalent of six round trips to the moon, amazingly without a single auto accident.

    He attributes his clean record to being cautious saying, "you have to be a defensive driver. You have to be able to compensate for other people's mistakes and expect the unexpected. You can't drive too close. I don't like to be in a pack."

    Sowder was one of 1,122 drivers inducted into UPS’s elite "Circle of Honor" this year. The award goes to active drivers who have steered clear of accidents for 25 years or more.

    This is an accomplishment!!

    I respect all these Circle of Honor drivers!
    They lead by example!!

    How many BC members are Circle of Honor?
    How many BC members are on the way to an accident free career?

    How many years of driving do you have and what do you credit for your accident free status?
