www.lifeasatrucker.com is a website with all sorts of information for over the road drivers, especially new ones. Categories are far reaching from new trucker tips, to truck stop tips, to training information and schools for CDL drivers and the list goes on and on.
The Winter Driving Safety section has a short video and information on spacing on the highway, mental preparation and how to correct a skid. At the bottom of the section is an area for drivers to share tips (many of the other sections do too). To create a forum of trucking knowledge and draw on the experience of the entire trucking community is a great idea.
The “Better Health as a Trucker” section is helpful and although the typical moving company driver gets way more exercise than your typical long haul driver, there are links for diets and healthy eating tips that anyone can benefit from. Defensive driving is yet another section with tips and a video on merging onto a highway.
An “ask a trucker” section and blog are available along with the often seen “trucking jobs”, “used trucks”, and “used equipment” sections but the site even has information on relationships, truckers wives, and better parenting sections. The better parenting section has a link to www.drugfree.org, and has tips on communicating with kids along with “The Big Picture proactive parenting advice free download”.
