When DSR Rick Suchy became a professional truck driver 30 years ago, he got into the business because he wanted a change, and it was a good way to earn a paycheck. Since then, he’s racked up a lot of miles — two million, accident-free, to be exact.
After all those years on the road, Suchy has some ideas on how motorists can keep the roads safe.
“Show common courtesy and use common sense,” he said.
Suchy explained that he sees a lot of road rage, and wishes people would drive less aggressively and not cut off other vehicles.
On reaching two million miles, Suchy feels both fortunate and proud.
“Hitting two million accident-free miles is a great achievement,” he said. “I feel lucky to have driven that far with no accidents.”
Over the course of those miles, Suchy said he has seen motorists do some strange things.
“Too many to count!”
