Truckers, We Need Your Help

This article is more than 8 years old.

A shout-out out to all truckers:

We have a lot of trucker listeners out there, and we always love it when you call in with great questions and comments.  Well now, we need you.

Any day now we’re going to do an hour on trucking in America today, the economics and more.

We want to hear from you, not only when we’re live on the day of the show, but starting now, as we prepare.  Your ideas will help us decide what to focus on during the hour:

1. What are the top issues for truckers these days? Cross-border trucking in and out of Mexico? Ice and snow removal? Gas prices? State of the roads, bridges and more? You tell us what's weighing on you and your fellow truckers.

2. Truckers see a lot of the country, and we want to tap into what you know or think about the state of America from your vantage point. How do you see the economy going? How do you see regular folks doing? Are Americans across the land really as different as the headlines tell us? Are the red-state/blue-state divisions as bad as they say? Are we getting along? Are we getting ahead?

3. Do you know a trucker-guru, a philosopher of the road, a trucker you’ve come to know in your travels who you admire for his or her wisdom, smarts, gift of the gab who you think would make a good guest on the show?

4. What are the best truck stops in the country?

5. Any good trucking songs we could use?

Please, comment with questions, ideas, stories, suggestions, anything that strikes you.
