Giv­ing truck drivers a break

New Zealand Logger - - Forest Talk -

TRUCK DRIVERS TAKE A LOT OF STICK FROM OTH­ERS ON OUR roads – and hav­ing been stuck be­hind many log trucks on long, wind­ing stretches in the past, we can ap­pre­ci­ate the frus­tra­tion.

But they’ve got a job to do and it’s about time they had more recog­ni­tion for the part all truck drivers play in our daily lives. Af­ter all, they de­liver our food, fuel, clothes, home­ware and just about any­thing you care to men­tion, in­clud­ing our pre­cious logs and lum­ber.

NZ Log­ger’s sis­ter-mag­a­zine, NZ Truck & Driver, is get­ting be­hind a cam­paign to sup­port truck­ies around the coun­try and cel­e­brate the truck­ing he­roes on our high­ways. It’s the first Na­tional Truck Driver Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Week and it takes place on Septem­ber 17-23. You might know a driver that you think should be re­warded for go­ing the ex­tra dis­tance. Check out the ad­vert on page 53 for how you can nom­i­nate them for an award.
