  • Appreciating the

    Less Appreciated

    Truck Driver

    Driving trucks? Sure, anyone can. Theres no difference.

    Theres more to see than what the naked eyes

    can perceive. To others,

    it might be the same, old

    job that is plainly ordinary

    and not interesting at all.

    You probably see them

    everywhere - hauling

    goods, crossing different routes, having little sleep and sometimes

    forgetting to change clothes for a day. They are usually

    overlooked and easily missed. Yet they are functional and

    committed to do their work. Noting also that even before they

    acquire the work, they had undergo to several tests and exam a cdl training in PA, Delaware, New Jersey or whichever state

    they are in to finally obtain a license and become professionals.

    As you can see, almost everything around you should be

    considered friendly reminders of how truck drivers contributed to

    our lives through the years. From the meal you have just eaten to

  • the phone you are using for multiple purposes it was all thanks to truck drivers perseverance to transport the goods and materials that we are utilizing and enjoying today. They are usually out on

    the open road and being away from their families even during

    the holidays. So it isnt unusual for a truck driver to miss thanksgiving parties, anniversaries, special dinners, birthdays and

    football games. They dont do it on purpose but they are left with no choice. They rather go driving away than let their families be

    starving. It is recorded that an average trucker logs five hundred

    (500) miles per day.

    In America, eighty percent (80%) of its communities depend

    on trucks entirely to transport their goods and other

    commodities. In 2013, there is about nine point seven (9.7)

    billion tons of cargo that have been shipped throughout the

    United States, according to ATA reports.

    With this consideration, the American Trucking Association (ATA)

    initiated a thanksgiving week called National Truck Driver

    Appreciation Week in which aims to recognize the efforts and

    hard work of the countrys professional truck drivers, which happens during September 14-20, or third week of the said

    month. It is an all-week event where everyone honors American

    truck drivers in tackling one of the most formidable jobs yet very

    critical to the countrys economy.

    The National Truck Driver Appreciation Week let drivers be

    treated extra special and pampered in truck terminals, in

    places they are frequent and by passers-by who would like

    to show their gratitude to them. There are many ways to show

    your appreciation to our fellow truck drivers. You can give

    refreshments and coffees on the house. It could be either

    free lunches or dinners. Or maybe freebies and giveaways

    like two tickets for a movie or gift certificate to a massage

    spa. Anything, as long as given wholeheartedly and a lot of

    appreciation, can be offered and truck drivers would love to

    receive them.

  • Why We Love Them

    Truck drivers are risk takers.

    They might not be holding a firearm each

    on their hands but operating such heavy

    equipment is already a challenge. Each

    time they drive it on the road with other

    vehicles (usually smaller from the size they

    are operating), is a daily test of securing

    safety in both vehicle parties and success

    transport. Truck drivers are more prone to

    accidents due to blind side or fatigued from

    lack of sleep and long hours of driving.

    Truck drivers are the worlds everyday heroes.

    From day to night, seven days a week, and

    a whole year round truck drivers never stop on delivering and picking-up the goods

    for us. It is their ultimate purpose and a lot of

    them feel the privilege to be in service to

    their countrymen. Being able to become

    the bridges of goods transport, they are our

    modern-day yet infinite paragons of our

    society.

    These two are only some of the reasons why

    America gives so much respect on them.

    They might be treated less appreciated in

    most of their days it is still nice to hear and see how they commit their selves to the job

    and continues to do that. So when Truck

    Drivers Appreciation Week comes, take a

    break and feel free to get into the fun.
