Words of wisdom from life on the road
In May, the NY Times article about the plight of America’s long-haul truckers created a great deal of interest. As a result, they decided to do a follow-up by asking truck drivers what they would say to drivers of four-wheeled vehicles if they got the chance.
Tons of responses came in with practical advice about highway safety, fervent pleas to put down those smartphones and requests to be treated with dignity. Truckers want to be seen (even if they are unseen, high up in their cabs) as fellow human beings, toiling long hours, who are conscientious and careful and want, above all, to get home safe to their loved ones.
We thought it fitting to share some of your fellow truckers responses.
