It was a busy weekend for Trucking Answers. I read 316 comments and responded to many of them. Some don't require a response. I also answered numerous emails and kept everyone up to date on social media. Its great being able to help those that want it and just keep in touch about the trucking industry with many of you. I learn from all of you, believe me. I don't pretend to know everything about trucking. I am just trying to do my best with the decades of experience I have to help people and make the industry better. We as drivers are licensed professionals and should be treated as such. In return, we should handle ourselves as professionals in all of our dealings with those in and out of the industry. Also, those of us with experience should help the next group of drivers coming on-line. Pass on that knowledge!
Today is Monday so that means the live show goes on at 1pm EST! Rain or shine, holiday or not I am live on Monday. Sometimes I pop in with an extra live show or two as well so be sure to subscribe to keep up to date on what is happening! Watch the live show here.
Remember, there is no charge to individual drivers for any help I can give. I write back to everyone who sends an email.
Finally, in the live chats I have some moderators. I haven't had a need for them yet but please keep it positive. I don't want to boot anyone but I will. No name calling like I see on others chats. We can disagree about things but let's keep it civil and for sure leave people's families out of it. That will get you banned. You can't succeed being negative.
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
