Hampton Roads, VA (UPDATED December 11, 2020) – Tuesday, December 15, 2020, from 8-10 am, Drive Safe Hampton Roads’ Specialized Transportation Safety Committee will be working with local police department motor carrier units and safety inspectors to conduct an annual Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Appreciation Day.

This event runs from 8-10am.
