Operators and mechanics of the Pee Dee Regional Transportation Authority shined March 5 at a “roadeo” competition in Hilton Head. The roadeo was held by the Transportation Association of South Carolina and the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
The roadeo is divided into four separate events: Maintenance, Van, Cut-Away and 35-foot bus categories. The driving competitions require safety and accuracy on obstacle courses and are designed to promote safe and competitive driving among vehicle operators. The maintenance competition includes equipment troubleshooting, coordination, collaboration and information sharing.
The authority walked away with first-place awards in the maintenance and 35-foot competitions.
