Show to focus on personal safety

On Thursday, Truckers News contributing editor and well-known “I’m Just Say’n” advice columnist Carolyn Magner will join cohosts Allen and Donna Smith on their Truth About Trucking Live online talk show to discuss the growing danger on the nation’s roadways. “Crime Against Truckers – Protection on the Road” airs Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Magner gained expertise in personal protection on the road during her reporting of the “Risky Business” cover story in the April edition of Truckers News, in which she runs through the personal security practices of several drivers and owner-operators and probes concealed carry laws as they pertain to interstate haulers. The Smiths have also covered this subject on their program in March 2010.
