Truck Driver Calling Family

Take the time to schedule phone calls with your family while you’re traveling.

Did you know that Thanksgiving Day sees the more traffic on the road than any other day of the year? If you are a truck driver, you may already have known this and are dreading having to drive on this day. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind so that your day is hopefully less stressful and, most importantly, safer!
