ruck driving can be a rewarding and long term career, but it can also be one of the most dangerous jobs out there. With the danger it brings to the driver, there are safety standards in place to try to avoid property damage, injury, and death.
When it comes to semis, it’s hard to beat a Kenworth. Their parent company builds some of the highest quality components on the market, and their support network is unsurpassed by any manufacturer. For most owner operators and many fleets, the only competition is Peterbilt and Mack. How does KW stack up against their competitors?
When it comes to driving, safety is of utmost importance, especially for truck drivers. While the number of truck-related fatalities has severely dropped over the last several decades, there are still a significant amount of accidents involving large trucks.
The truck driving life is one many people envy. To them, spending time on the road and seeing the world is far more appealing than being cooped up in an office job day after day. Trucking is also a stable career that allows for an enjoyable, flexible lifestyle.
