Let's remember back to September of 2017. This fledgling channel had a few subscribers and very few views. Then I got a break. Operation Black and Blue was announced. Truck drivers from around the country were supposed to descend on Washington DC and tell Congress that they don't want and ELD but I had a good idea that they would not be able to round up more than a few dozen drivers. I made a video about it and I was right. More than that, though, this video was my first video over 1000 views and helped move the channel along. YouTube was starting to get the idea that this is a channel to promote to viewers. That video was the first large increase in subscribers and views here at Trucking Answers. Do you remember that video?
It doesn't get really any views anymore because that time has passed. To see that many views was very exciting to me! I was beginning to get my message out there and that is what this is all about. To help people and change the industry you have to be able to get your ideas in the world. This was the first big step.
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.
