It annoys me when I see a truck driving about 6 feet behind my rear bumper. The law of physics would dictate that we still will arrive at our destinations at about the same time! Truck drivers used to be considered the “gentlemen of the highways”. Now there are some who can’t even speak English!
Anyone who drives on the highway can share plenty of stories of what we’ve seen trucks do….but most of us have no idea what’s going on inside the cab. The new laws and the new fellow-truck drivers have substantially changed the industry and the reputation of trucks on the roads.
My husband used to drive a truck, so this topic is near and dear to me. It was like having a permanently-installed lobbyist built into my house at all times. It’s amazing what a legislator can learn by being married to someone with a strong opinion!
To help you understand, we did a show on what’s happening out there on the road. I hope you find this as helpful as I did.
