Today’s Thoughts By Jeff Head 4/6/15 Simple Truths
Often, I am asked, just what exactly motivates me to work as I do toward safety in the trucking industry. I always answer back with a story about having to drive on three, crushed disc in my back. Yes, that certainty was the reason back years ago that I got involved in trucking issues and began working toward truckers to be able to run safe and legal without reprisal.
Simple truth, after I tell that story I always regret that I did not answer with a different story, a different reason that pushes me even to this day. That scream I heard so long ago that I still hear today in my mind. I have to be honest about this, even as hard as it is for me to live with, others have to live with it every day to. You see, I said nothing and because of that, I watched a whole family died as a big truck crushed their car while tailgating them through a construction zone. That scream came from the one little girl that survived as she looked over and seen her mom.
Needless deaths on the highway at the hands of reckless drivers, is something we can all take part in stopping. It does not matter, what we drive, or what they drive, car or truck. Together, we can stand up, speak out, and make a difference. Amen
God Bless America
