PLANO, TEXAS - PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America has seen a 70-percent decline in collisions since 1999 through the Million Milers program and its extensive safety efforts, according to the company.

This year, 95 of Frito-Lay's over-the-road (OTR) drivers have reached the career milestone of driving more than one million, two million, or three million miles accident-free. The company now has more than 500 active "Million Milers" on the roads daily, which represents nearly 40-percent of its U.S. drivers. Seven Million Milers have driven three million accident-free miles throughout their careers with Frito-Lay.

This year's class of "Million Milers," along with their families, was recognized by Frito-Lay's top executives at an annual gala at the company's national headquarters in Plano, Texas.

Frito-Lay's Million Milers possess high-level safety skills honed through extensive 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, according to the company.
