FMCSA and Virginia DOT Host 11th Annual Event to Say ‘Thanks’ to Truckers

Suffolk, VA – Multiple state and federal government offices, companies and police spent Wednesday morning celebrating local truckers in Virginia.

The annual Peninsula Commercial Motor Vehicles “Driver Appreciation Day” took place Wednesday, June 23 between 7:30 and 11 a.m.


Participating groups invited truckers to stop by the Monitor-Merrimac Inspection Station, located on northbound Interstate 664, to receive free refreshments.

Event sponsors said it is a way to say “thanks” for all truckers do.

This is the 11th year the event has been held.

However, this year took on additional meaning given the contributions truckers made to keep America moving during the widespread lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


The 2021 event was sponsored by Drive Safe Hampton Roads in partnership with AAA Tidewater Virginia, Capital Concrete Inc., Coastal Ride, Virginia Highway Safety Office, DRIVE SMART Virginia, the Virginia Dept. of Transportation (VDOT), Virginia State Police, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Story Distributing, and Local Law Enforcement Motor Carrier Units/Safety Inspectors.
