What is this person called?

What do you call the person who drives behind a "wide load" on the highway? I'm serious! He's usually in a pick-up with flashing lights, and warns other drivers on the highway that the truck ahead or behind is carrying a half a home, etc. Kevin thought he might like to look into it as a future job when we move. He's leaving a job he's had for 22 years, so he's really open to explore new horizons.
