Poll reveals trucker-appreciation is up 27% thanks to coronavirus


Floridians are 27% more thankful for truckers than they were just a few months ago, says a recent poll. 

According to a Mason-Dixon poll conducted in July, 84% of Floridians have a positive attitude towards truck drivers these days, versus a mere 57% prior to the pandemic. 

The poll also discovered that both women and young people have realized the worth of truck drivers during this global crisis as well, with their positive feelings up by 32% and 30%, respectively, reported The Palm Beach Post.

This means that only 6% of people in Florida have maintained their negative or ‘somewhat negative’ attitudes towards the heroes of the road, even in areas with major traffic.

As the Florida Trucking Association says: “Your Tomorrow Is on a Truck Today.”
