On the Darker Side of the Driver Shortage
In the USA’s rise over the past 100+ years to the dominant economic powerhouse of the world, one of the great unsung heroes has been our truck drivers; the regular Joes and Jennys who have literally delivered on the promises of America’s free-market economic system. Unsung perhaps, because over the decades truck driver’s and their reputations have been both vaunted and vilified in society, but mostly vilified it seems; targeted by politicians, regulators and public safety advocates all looking to spare the motoring public from the hazards of transporting goods commercially using heavy vehicles on public roads. And then there’s the lawyers.
It is an undeniable grind to be a professional commercial truck driver. Most in the industry understand this: The job is physically demanding, isolating and extremely dangerous, especially for people that operate class 8 rigs over-the-road for long distances. Oh, and if you missed the memo, relative to the task and hours, and the physical demands the profession places on drivers the job can be absolutely harrowing. Even life threatening. Amalgamate all the reasons, dangers, pitfalls and issues – and throw in some very uncooperative demographic trends - and it becomes easy to see why there is a chronic shortage of qualified drivers for the job. Nevertheless, bad is bad; employing substandard drivers can be very bad for business.
