How does a truck driver protect themselves

Wasp spray can shoot a stream up to 20 feet, hit them in the eyes and they have to go to the ER for the antidote. Granted, only talking about protecting yourself from the truck...I COULD just see Rainy strolling through the parking lot with her can of wasp spray...

Hello from TN ! Newbie starting CDL Class Soon...... Overwhelmed !

Hey ALL,

Newb from Murfreesboro, TN checking in. After much thought and consideration, I've decided to get a CDL-A and go for my 3rd Retirement. I am a Retired USAF TSgt. Served 1983 - 2003. As was a 4T071 (Medical Lab Tech). I go on with the VA after the USAF until Retiring "early" there the past August.

Anyways, I'm as green as you were when you were a Newbie and researching the ends of the internet all about the Trucking industry.

I start class this coming Monday in pursuit of obtaining a CDL-A. My career goal (at this point) is to eventually get a Local/Dedicated job. At this stage of my life, I'm not real keen on running a ton of miles OTR. Family reasons really. I'll do what I have to do though.

Any and all advice you can shovel my way would be more than appreciated.

-God Bless
