We rely on those roads and the countless big rigs rolling down them to supply us with just about everything we use every day. But this round-the-clock lifeline has become so entrenched in our daily routines, we don’t even notice it any more. Now that neglect is reaching a crisis point. — bepreparedtostop.org
Filmmaker Jennifer Clymer is currently hard at work on a documentary called Be Prepared To Stop which highlights the importance of the trucking industry to the lives of everyday Americans while exploring the troubling challenges truck drivers face on the road.
Clymer says that she is making the film to honor her grandfather, who was a truck driver. She wants to use the documentary to highlight the importance of the trucking industry to the life of everyday Americans while raising awareness about the frightening problems facing it– which include crumbling highways and the fact that the government seems unable to do anything about it.
Clymer says she hopes to have the documentary finished in time for the 2016 election cycle — and says she is considering the idea of showing it in an 18 wheeler converted into a movie theater.
