Personal Safety on the Road.

Thank you for your replies. That makes a lot of sense; you probably have more safety concerns ON the road than off! Haha! And that's a funny story about the panhandler. I'm a limo driver and come across the same types in downtown S.F., but almost all are harmless.

Personal Safety on the Road.

Hello all,

After several months of research I've decided to try a career in trucking and plan to go to CDL school this November. This website has been just brilliant and articles by Brett, Trucker Mike, Guy Hodges and others have been extremely helpful. Thank you! I've heard there can be some dangerous places on the road such as West Memphis or certain parts of interstate 10 in the southwest. When I say dangerous I mean robberies/hijacking and such. If so, what are some things a trucker can do or should be aware of while out on the road?
