Plenty of truckers complain about how four-wheelers drive.
But this month, 350 of your fellow truck drivers took it a step further,
telling the magazine Men’s Health the biggest problems they have with “civilian drivers,” and offering those drivers some advice.
The information was part of an article in the April 2005
issue titled “Crush Hour,” which discussed various aspects of auto accidents
and how they affect men’s health. It noted that “car accidents are the fourth
leading cause of death among men.”
In that article it published the results of a survey of
drivers accomplished with the help of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers
Calling truckers the “schoolmarms of the street,” it offered
a few choice statistics and advice from truck drivers to four-wheelers:
percent of truckers in the survey said the more expensive the car, the
more oblivious the driver.
trucker tip: “Put down the cell phone and BlackBerry and at least try to
pay attention to the road.
percent said teenagers are the worst drivers.
tip: “Drive like your mother is with you.”
More of the magazine’s findings and observations can be
found in the April issue of Men’s Health.
