This one is a story about a truck driver Marc Springer. It's a brief run through about his life and the reality TV show he did> I haven't personally watched the TV show. There is a comment left in reply to the story and it seems life the person that left the comment wasn't happy with the show at all.
The reason, I'm recommending the story is because I want you to see what opportunities trucking can open for you.
This was bad news. It's about an accident that was on the I-80 that involved 22 trucks. Just a reminder that we need to keep more following space and slow down during this weather season.

Until next time.
