Trucking is an important and necessary industry to the sustainability of our nation. In many ways, the trucking industry drives our economy. If trucks stopped, our economy stops, but, worse, food and necessities stop.

“Consider what would happen if every truck were pulled off the road. There would be a perishable goods shortage within three days. Drinking water would disappear within two to four weeks. Food supplies in hospitals would be gone in 24 hours. ATMs would be empty in two to three days,” American Trucking Association Chief Economist Bob Costello wrote.

“I would challenge anyone to find a business that doesn’t rely on trucks to bring them either inputs into what they’re doing or their final product,” Costello wrote. “80 percent of U.S. communities depend on truck drivers for the delivery of everyday goods.”
