Truck driver forums have grown in popularity. People like being able to find the information they need, from an industry professional.
People not only come looking for answers, they offer advice, share stories, vent, and even make new friends. That is why the truck driver forums are so popular.
You can find on these truck driver forums pretty much everything you want to know, with only few clicks on your computer. From where to find cheep Diesel, to tips on how to increase your truck driver salary, and even a list with the best trucking companies to work for or even a local CDL jobs list. It goes so indeed that you can find things you never knew about trucks and truckers!
The one thing with the trucking industry, it is well regulated. There are numerous agencies involved in overseeing the safe operation of commercial vehicles on America’s highways. No one should argue the importance of safety, but some will argue it has become over burdened with regulatory agencies. Some of which include:
- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
- Department of Transportation (DOT)
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
- Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- And of course the local and state level regulatory bodies
Though some feel they get in the way of progress, most know that they are necessary. The various truck driver forums are filled with posts (both good and bad) about them. Remember, most are just doing their job.
Speaking of which let me get on with mine. I have reviewed many forums and blogs and found that there are literally hundreds of blogs! But these seem to offer useful and/or entertaining information on the topics truckers care about. So in no special order here is a list of perhaps the 10 best truck driver forums.
For the first in our list of truck driver forums I chose the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA).
They proudly promote themselves as an organization that “represents the interests of new car and truck dealers to the public, the media, and Congress and vehicle manufacturers”.
Now, even do they do post blogs in every category associated with the automotive industry, however, the reason I chose them as one of the best truck driver forums, is because of their Commercial Truck Blog.
It offers wide variety topics, for those in the trucking industry. They offer industry related event and news, market analysis with forecast, vehicle related information, and a whole lot of other topics.
Now I know most people might not think of lawyers when they think about truck driver forums, but the Truck Law Blog offers many great topics written by transportation lawyers from the Anderson and Yamada, P.C., law firm.
They boast that they have “focused on transportation law and legal issues locally, regionally, and nationally since its founding in 1982”.
