In an effort to make the driving experience as pleasant as possible Crete Carrier has updated their
rider policy. This new policy is intended to give the Crete drivers much more flexibility in who
they can take with them on trips. One of the more significant changes in truck driving jobs is
the ability to take children along. Although children under 4 require a non-driving parent along
as well, children ages 4-18 are able to ride without non-driver supervision.
Specifically the new policy allows the following riders at no cost:
Spouse, which includes "common law" spouse where permitted by law
One child, stepchild, foster child, niece/nephew, or grandchild
One adult age 19 or older
"It is great to be able to take family, and even a friend, along on free rides at no cost, makes the
rigors of being an over-the-road driver much more tolerable. The time away from home and
family is hard, but if you have a loved one along for the ride its not so bad," says one of Cretes
Crete Carrier recognized that having passengers on rides was a significant benefit to its drivers.
Not only does it help with the morale of the driver, but it also improves safety by having
someone to help watch for hazards and assist in keeping the driver alert. Crete is always looking
for ways to improve the truck driving jobs experience, and this new policy is evidence of that
