What a long, hot week. Thankfully, we’ve had a little rain and an alleged “cool” front came through. It’s amazing what a difference 10 degrees can make. It’s never too hot to sit inside and read trucking news, though, so here’s your News Convoy Roundup for the week!
- You voted, now see the results for the top 10 trucking songs of all time!
- We sell a ton of em. Whether you know them as “truck nuts,” “bull balls,” or whatever other more colorful name you’ve heard, you know they’re pretty much a harmless part of pop culture. However, there are lawmakers and law enforcement agencies who disagree!
- This story about truckers who have been asked to smuggle drugs across the US-Mexico border is another entry in the growing list of reasons why American truckers are very wary of cross-border trucking. That’s one subject you can’t learn enough about!
