What advice would you give four-wheelers?

HARVEY GRAHAM
Columbia, Miss.
D&E Trucking

“They’re not that bad. They do need to stop cutting across all lanes to get to an exit. I have seen four-wheelers in the center lane cut all the way across in front of everyone to get to an exit.”



T.J. CRIDDLE
Caledonia, Miss.
Discovery Transport

“Have a little bit of respect for the truckers. But that respect goes both ways. We need to show respect to four-wheelers, too.”



JEFF JARVIS
Dallas
Werner Enterprises

“Four-wheelers panic too much. They get scared at the size of our trucks and just panic on the road.”


ABRAHAM ROGERS
Birmingham, Ala.
Power Waste System
“Be careful. Don’t try to outrun or beat a truck. You are fighting a losing battle.”

DIANE WEST
Frankfort, Ohio
JD Express LLC

“Can’t we all be friends? We all need the road. Respect us, and we will respect you.”



ANDY WARD

Werner Enterprises

“When entering the interstate, don’t slow down or stop, just speed up and get on the road.”



FRANK HODGE
San Antonio
Werner Enterprises

“Don’t be so reckless. Think first. You might save a life, even your own.”


KENNETH DURBIN
Mora, La.
USA Truck
“We can’t stop as fast as them. Trying to beat a truck is like trying to beat a train.”

BRENT COWDEN
Minerva, Ohio
Con-Way Now

“I wish that they knew and understood about blind spots in the mirrors and at the front corner of the truck.”



DAVE DIXON
Knoxville, Tenn.
Pemberton Truck Lines

“Observe the restricted lanes for trucks. Most don’t even know about them.”



ROXANNE LONG
Santa Maria, Calif.
Wagoners

“Stay out of the way. Be a little more courteous and give a little more room.”
