PLANO, Texas, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America business unit today recognized 100 over-the-road (OTR) drivers in the U.S. and Canada who have reached the career milestone of driving more than one million, two million, or three million miles accident-free.

"The Frito-Lay fleet is not only one of the largest private fleets in North America, but also one of the safest," said Bill Simkins, manager, national fleet safety, Frito-Lay North America. "Our drivers attend extensive training programs and consider safety to be their number one priority. We thank this year's Million Milers for their dedication to Frito-Lay and for keeping our roads accident-free every day."

Frito-Lay's Million Milers have high-caliber safety skills honed through regular and robust training and adherence to good driving behaviors. Frito-Lay utilizes skills maneuvering courses, advanced driving simulators and team collaborations on best practices to create a positive safety culture and to help its drivers maintain their skills.

On average it takes a Frito-Lay OTR driver about 12 years to reach the one million mile mark. The company now has more than 500 active Million Milers on the roads daily.

This year, two drivers achieved more than three million accident-free miles and 22 drivers achieved two million miles. Through the Million Milers program and the company's extensive safety efforts, Frito-Lay has seen a 71% decline in total collisions since 2002.

The Million Milers, along with their families, were recognized by Frito-Lay's top executives at an annual gala at the company's headquarters in Plano, Texas.
