Learn about issues surrounding the trucking industry and those who serve them, as well as how to keep more truckers on the road during these difficult times.
It’s a time, though, where truckers have even more concerns that they would typically. It’s not just about long hours on the road, navigating heavy traffic and braving a wide range of weather conditions. In fact, now with less traffic on the roads, truckers have even more to fear—getting sick and risking their lives.
It’s a time when some truckers say “I’m not risking my life over it” and choosing not to stay on the road, others believe the whole thing is a hoax. Many, though, remain on the roads and are taking precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of others.
The American Trucking Association has created a COVID-19 Update Hub with quick links to the CDC, Coronavirus.gov, SBA, IRS and U.S. Chamber to keep truckers, trucking organizations and industry stakeholders up-to-date. Their March 24 update included a notification that the U.S. DOT had issued new guidance on expired commercial drivers’ licenses and medical cards. While not a “blanket exemption,” the guidance helps to ensure that more truckers can stay on the road.
