Trucking isn’t easy! We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. The work of truck driver is endless, taxing (both physically and mentally), and frankly – the driving community as a whole rarely receives so much as a ‘thank you’ from the general public for the sacrifices they make to keep the nation rolling. Recently we asked the readers of CDLLife: “If there were merit badges for trucking, what would they be?” (the thread can be viewed below!)
Good morning! 😀 If there were merit badges for trucking, what would they be?
We enjoyed our readers’ responses so much, that we decided to make a series of ‘Trucking Merit Badges’ based on our favorite suggestions, to recognize the hard work of professional drivers (and to make light of some of the less-than-savory aspects of the job). – Enjoy!
