I have the greatest respect for the men and women who take on the responsibility
of controlling the 50 or so tonnes of fast moving freight coming to a town near you.Whilst the mechanicals in a semi ,are the most advanced available, they still
need expert operators (drivers).The drivers` seat is up high so they can see ahead
for a long way and predict events that may happen. all the while checking his mirrors to see when vehicles are about to pass. Sometimes he realises these vehicles are going to collide and he will do his best to make them aware.
A truck driver is most often the first to attend an accident and render assistance,
Truck drivers are ( "The Angels Of Our Highways ") ,Respect them, and you will receive respect .
As with all road users.
