The granddaddy of trucker's organizations, and a real champion in difficult times.
California truckers, especially the independents, are subject to very harsh and expensive regulations. They're not taking this lying down!
(All truckers hope to drive a modern rig that's clean running and fuel efficient, so the big problem is with an arrogant, ham-handed, promise-breaking state bureaucracy.)

Doing overnight runs? Working long hours anywhere? Tune into Red Eye Radio, over the air or via the Internet.

The University of California, Berkeley is sponsoring a project to help truckers.
(Okay you brainiacs: how about an app to help big-rigs find the nearest available safe and legal truck parking spot?
How about a loud and clear app which informs a waiting trucker that a warehouse dock, or a slot to depart from a marshaling yard, has opened up?)
Yes there are women truckers, and diesel mechanics. Not many, and I'm glad to see they have an excellent forum.
This web site covers the greatest challenge a trucker can face, at least in the USA or Canada: a delivery route in New York City, and Manhattan especially. (Just getting into the city costs a fortune in tolls.)
I am hoping to add more links, to similar regional web sites, however they seem awfully rare . . .

Truckers on the Web
In a better world I would not have to say this, but here goes . . .
We are adding these links as a resource for truckers. This is a simple page, not the Better Business Bureau or a consumer advocate's group, so we're doing this for free, and in good faith. Presumably everyone linked here is doing a helpful honest job for truckers.

(Good going, all! Truckers remain heavily underrepresented on the Internet. Many drivers and dispatchers use computers for map directions, finding loads, and general Internet 'surfing' -- but not for creating web sites of their own.)
