Giving truck drivers a break
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.
