Previously on Over the Road: Episode 4 -- Three stops in Kentucky

The Channel One-Nine Special set of mini-episodes in the Over the Road podcast series attempts to provide answers to questions about trucking from listeners inside and outside the business, by consulting with the professionals. For the fourth special, a lightning round of Q&A from motorist listeners about the basics of the truck itself — questions on engine brakes, gears, idling, uphill speed (and lack thereof) and plenty more.

Four-decade owner-op veteran Ingrid Brown answers most, with an assist from a few others. Take a listen:
