Top Trucker: Stop Speeding and Texting

Photo: Jerald Jackson/FlickrWith 45 years of experience as a trucker, 72-year-old Milt Lowe hasn't had a single moving violation (unlike yours truly). This cautious driver has been on some of the most dangerous, difficult roads in the US -- Minneapolis concrete is no joke in the winter! How does he stay safe, even when he's under pressure to deliver a load on time?

He says two things are key: he doesn't speed, and he doesn't use his phone while driving. With 3.5 million miles under his belt, his defensive driving tactics have kept him, and other drivers, safe. Pretty good record, I'd say!
