<ul><li><p> Appreciating the </p><p>Less Appreciated </p><p>Truck Driver </p><p>Driving trucks? Sure, anyone can. Theres no difference. </p><p>Theres more to see than what the naked eyes </p><p>can perceive. To others, </p><p>it might be the same, old </p><p>job that is plainly ordinary </p><p>and not interesting at all. </p><p>You probably see them </p><p>everywhere - hauling </p><p>goods, crossing different routes, having little sleep and sometimes </p><p>forgetting to change clothes for a day. They are usually </p><p>overlooked and easily missed. Yet they are functional and </p><p>committed to do their work. Noting also that even before they </p><p>acquire the work, they had undergo to several tests and exam a cdl training in PA, Delaware, New Jersey or whichever state </p><p>they are in to finally obtain a license and become professionals. </p><p>As you can see, almost everything around you should be </p><p>considered friendly reminders of how truck drivers contributed to </p><p>our lives through the years. From the meal you have just eaten to </p></li><li><p>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 </p><p>the open road and being away from their families even during </p><p>the holidays. So it isnt unusual for a truck driver to miss thanksgiving parties, anniversaries, special dinners, birthdays and </p><p>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 </p><p>starving. It is recorded that an average trucker logs five hundred </p><p>(500) miles per day. </p><p>In America, eighty percent (80%) of its communities depend </p><p>on trucks entirely to transport their goods and other </p><p>commodities. In 2013, there is about nine point seven (9.7) </p><p>billion tons of cargo that have been shipped throughout the </p><p>United States, according to ATA reports. </p><p>With this consideration, the American Trucking Association (ATA) </p><p>initiated a thanksgiving week called National Truck Driver </p><p>Appreciation Week in which aims to recognize the efforts and </p><p>hard work of the countrys professional truck drivers, which happens during September 14-20, or third week of the said </p><p>month. It is an all-week event where everyone honors American </p><p>truck drivers in tackling one of the most formidable jobs yet very </p><p>critical to the countrys economy. </p><p>The National Truck Driver Appreciation Week let drivers be </p><p>treated extra special and pampered in truck terminals, in </p><p>places they are frequent and by passers-by who would like </p><p>to show their gratitude to them. There are many ways to show </p><p>your appreciation to our fellow truck drivers. You can give </p><p>refreshments and coffees on the house. It could be either </p><p>free lunches or dinners. Or maybe freebies and giveaways </p><p>like two tickets for a movie or gift certificate to a massage </p><p>spa. Anything, as long as given wholeheartedly and a lot of </p><p>appreciation, can be offered and truck drivers would love to </p><p>receive them. </p></li><li><p> Why We Love Them </p><p>Truck drivers are risk takers. </p><p>They might not be holding a firearm each </p><p>on their hands but operating such heavy </p><p>equipment is already a challenge. Each </p><p>time they drive it on the road with other </p><p>vehicles (usually smaller from the size they </p><p>are operating), is a daily test of securing </p><p>safety in both vehicle parties and success </p><p>transport. Truck drivers are more prone to </p><p>accidents due to blind side or fatigued from </p><p>lack of sleep and long hours of driving. </p><p> Truck drivers are the worlds everyday heroes. </p><p>From day to night, seven days a week, and </p><p>a whole year round truck drivers never stop on delivering and picking-up the goods </p><p>for us. It is their ultimate purpose and a lot of </p><p>them feel the privilege to be in service to </p><p>their countrymen. Being able to become </p><p>the bridges of goods transport, they are our </p><p>modern-day yet infinite paragons of our </p><p>society. </p><p>These two are only some of the reasons why </p><p>America gives so much respect on them. </p><p>They might be treated less appreciated in </p><p>most of their days it is still nice to hear and see how they commit their selves to the job </p><p>and continues to do that. So when Truck </p><p>Drivers Appreciation Week comes, take a </p><p>break and feel free to get into the fun. </p></li><li><p>More comprehensive CDL training for you be it in PA, New </p><p>Jersey or Delaware?
