How do you protect yourself?

  • Dear Carolyn,

You asked us how we protect ourselves on the road? Well, I use extra strength/extra large Trojans!!!



Dear Frank,

That was funny the first time. But you are about the 11th one to send this and well, I’ve moved from laughing to rolling my eyes. Really? This is a serious topic.–protection-on-the-road

I’ve had a lot of comments on my story about staying safe on the road. It’s a serious topic and lots of truckers wrote in to say they were worried about what seems to be an increase in crimes against truck drivers. The recent murder of Truman Smith, still unsolved, really hit home.

According to the experts I talked to for this story, one of the best ways to protect yourself is to be aware of your surroundings. It’s your most powerful weapon.

Be careful out there,

I’m just say’n,
