Big Rigs - - CAREERS -

TO CEL­E­BRATE our new sec­tion all about ca­reers and train­ing, we asked you what you thought were the best things about be­ing a truck driver.

Cal­lum John­stone said it was driv­ing past chil­dren and the give you the “big arm pump for the air horn, I never get sick of that”.

Donna Rock thought it was the money.

“There aren’t many po­si­tions out there that pay me what I earn with­out higher educ­tion,” she said.

“Oh and the view each day.”

Gavin Sum­merville agreed with Donna about the view.

“Some peo­ple pay thou­sands for it and we get it for free,” he said.

Danny Boron­ski said it was know­ing his con­tri­bu­tion be­hind the scenes of day-to-day life pro­vided food “in tum­mies”, clothes to wear, houses to live in and so on.

“My lit­tle bit to help­ing so­ci­ety out,” he said.

For Mat Turn­bull, it was the lit­tle things such as lis­ten­ing to the ra­dio.

“Not many bosses let you have the ra­dio as loud as you like and give you a bed be­hind your desk,” he said.
