However you feel about the police, you have to admit that right now is a hard time to be a police officer.
Police shootings in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and Kansas City, have left the law enforcement community shocked and on edge, feeling as if they have been suddenly become villains in the eyes of the public.
CDLLife reader Steve McIntosh wants to do something to help truckers show police that they are appreciated and supported. His idea? Drivers can “tie a blue ribbon (or a strip of a blue t-shirt you can get cheap at almost any truck stop) to your mirror or antenna. Pass this along for those who want to show they don’t agree people should target law enforcement.”
This simple gesture could go a long way towards helping police feel safer and more supported by the Knights of the Highway — the trucking community.
