What you wish peo­ple knew


“IT DOESN’T just mag­i­cally ap­pear on the store’s shelf by it­self.”

Those were the words of truckie Garry Whyler, who was one of Big Rigs’ many fol­low­ers who shared what they wished peo­ple who weren’t in the in­dus­try knew.

War­wick Lewis said he just wanted re­spect.

“Re­spect the peo­ple who make it hap­pen,” he said.

“Without trucks Aus­tralia stops.”

Brian Gray shared that sen­ti­ment.

“If trucks stop, Aus­tralians starve.”

Bren­don Parker wanted peo­ple to learn about break­ing dis­tances, Tom Ruff wished they knew about the “ex­ces­sive over-en­force­ment” of the in­dus­try, and for Dave Hoey it was that truck­ies were ded­i­cated and hard work­ers.

Ja­son Fin­nie and Colin Pa­trick Tomelty of­fered up the fact that truck­ies spent a lot of time away from home.
