    Policy for Drivers

    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.

    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

    drivers.

    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

    mindset.
