UPS again set a new record for the latest class of amazing drivers who have gone 25 years without an accident – 1,235. This year’s additions bring the total number of active Circle of Honor drivers to 5,842. These drivers have collectively driven more than 5.3 billion miles without an accident.
And the safest driver of them all is Ron “Big Dog” Sowder from Springboro, Ohio, who recently celebrated 50 years of safe driving. That makes Ron the safest driver in UPS history. Ron has been driving safely longer than many people have been alive. And speaking of being alive, there’s no telling how many lives he has saved by steering clear of accidents for so many years and so many miles. Ron has amassed more than 4 million miles without so much as a scratch.
The video below shows Ron crossing the “finish” line on his 50 year safe driving anniversary.
