The Secret Lives Of Truckers
No matter what you think of trucks and truckers, trying going a day without anything that made at least part of its way to you on a truck. It would be a quiet day, I think.
Truckers are out there trying to share the road with us, and today, we want you to hear their voices.
Our stereotypes are probably a little off. A fair number of truckers are women. They're as likely to be interested in Sirius satellite radio as CBS, and some of them even use audiobooks to keep from going nuts.
The technology of the business is changing, and some trucks now come equipped with monitors and governors that allow the parent company to set maximum speeds.
Some of our guests today compete in state and national championships and these turn out to include written exams safety tests and spot-the-defect challenges. Trucks are going away. If you think they are you've got a blind spot. And that, as we will learn today, is something you want to avoid.
