104 Frito-Lay Drivers Achieve 1 Million Accident-Free Miles

September 21, 2010

PLANO, TEXAS - PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America business unit recognized its 104 over-the-road (OTR) drivers in the U.S. and Canada who this year have reached the career milestone of more than one million or two million miles driven accident-free. Frito-Lay now has more than 500 active Million Milers on the roads daily, which represents nearly 40 percent of its U.S. drivers.

On average, the company said it takes a Frito-Lay OTR driver about 10 years to reach the one-million mile mark. Six Million Milers have driven three million accident-free miles throughout their careers with Frito-Lay. Through the program and the company's safety efforts, Frito-Lay has seen a 70-percent decline in collisions since 1999.

This year's class of Million Milers, along with their families, was recognized by Frito-Lay's top executives at an annual gala at the company's national headquarters in Plano, Texas.

Frito-Lay utilizes skills maneuvering courses, advanced driving simulators, and team collaborations on best practices to create a positive safety culture and help its drivers maintain their skills.
