Remember to Buckle up for Safety this Holiday Season!

Hampton Roads, VA. (UPDATED December 07, 2021) – On Monday, December 13, 2021, from 8-10 am, Drive Safe Hampton Roads’ Specialized Transportation Safety Committee will be working with the Virginia State Police and Motor Carrier Safety Inspectors from Suffolk, Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach to conduct this annual Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver Appreciation Day.

This event is held on Interstate 264 eastbound near South Independence Blvd. at the old Toll Plaza. Commercial Drivers are encouraged to drive through to receive food and safe driving reminders. This event runs from 8-10am.
