America's Road Team - 2001-2002 - Daniel Hiser
Over 40 years and 3 1/2 million miles of safe driving make Dan Hiser one of the most experienced veterans in the trucking industry today. He credits much of his success as a driver to being alert to the ever-changing traffic and road conditions. "Keeping a constant check on my mirrors and looking way ahead have proved to be very beneficial," Dan said. He also believes that treating others on the highway as you would want to be treated helps lessen stress on the driver.
He has received many honors throughout his career, including the "Million Miles Award" from the National Safety Council and first place recognition in the regional Frito Lay Championship in 1986.
Named 2000 Driver of the Year in Arkansas by the Arkansas Trucking Association, this Little Rock road driver states, "Education is essential to satisfaction in any area of life, and I try to contribute to the education of the motoring public regarding safely sharing the road with commercial trucks and each other. Meeting other drivers with positive attitudes and good ideas about how to promote a positive image for trucking and truck drivers is also important to me."
Dan is very active in his church, serving as a teacher, choir member and soloist and conducting Bible study groups. If he has any time to spare, he likes to tour on his motorcycle.
