Good Day! Although the website name depicts War ON Truckers it is more about the War Against Truckers.
This website is for the American people to better understand American Truckers. After all "IF YOU GOT IT, A TRUCK BROUGHT IT". That statement is absolutely true. The truck drivers are just trying to make an honest living just like everyone else. Yet government policies at all levels are treating the truck drivers like second class citizens. Hopefully when you read through the postings and comments on this site, you will better understand the plight of the American Trucker.
All we ask is that you read and then hopefully you will contact your elected officials and tell them how their laws and policies are affecting truck drivers and if there is enough support, those unfair or senseless laws and/or policies will change.
There are organizations supporting the Trucking Companies like the American Trucking Assn (ATA) but they support the companies, not the drivers. For independant drivers and Owner Operators there is an excellent organization called the Owner Operator Independant Drivers Assn or OOIDA for short. They do an excellent job in Washington and elsewhere. What truck drivers really need is the support of the American People, and that is what this site is all about.
This website/blog isn't about changing HOS (Hours of Service) rules or other safety related issues, although some of the issues if changed will increase safety on the roads as you will read. This is about major relevant issues facing the Truck Drivers on a daily basis and the problems that the Federal, State, County and City governments have created for them.
