Event recognizes operator skills and driving ability to increase safety

AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Transportation Paris District would like to congratulate Red River County Maintenance employee, Kody Gray for being named the runner-up in the annual TxDOT Roadeo. Kody won the Clarksville Maintenance section and Paris District Championship Roadeo titles before heading to Austin for the State Truck Roadeo. At the State Truck Roadeo, Kody finished second in the state competition with a score of 290 points out of the possible 360 points, only 20 points below the first place ranking. This is the highest finish that any driver from Paris has ever attained!
The purpose of the "Truck Roadeo" is to:
* Establish safe vehicle operation, thus reducing accidents.
* Recognize the skills of the operators participating and the pride exhibited in the safe operation of TxDOT equipment.
* Create a keen interest in driving ability, which contributes to the safety program of any fleet operation.
The program consists of the following:
 An equipment inspection exercise that will test each driver's skill in finding several safety defects which have been "planted" on a dump truck (points are awarded for successful completion of this exercise).
 An obstacle course that has been designed to simulate equipment maneuvers encountered on a normal workday (points are awarded for each test of skill; penalties are assessed for various driving deficiencies).
 The driver with the maximum number of accumulated points will be declared the winner.
For more information, contact TxDOT Media Relations at becky.ozuna@txdot.gov or (512) 463-8700.
