Yesterday while driving to pick up The Boy from school, I noticed that the traffic appeared heavier than it was earlier in the week. That, coupled with the outrageous heat and humidity, reminded me that it is summer. Cape Cod is officially open for the season. There were cars, SUVs, and delivery trucks everywhere. Seeing all of these trucks got me thinking about how the businesses must use truck driving recruiting to bring drivers to our seasonal community.
If I was a truck driver assigned to Cape Cod, I think the traffic would make me crazy! There are often back ups to get over the Sagamore Bridge in both directions. Many of the towns here have narrow “main streets” that are packed with pedestrians and people which makes navigating a truck difficult. To humor myself, I suppose I would come up with funny games to entertain myself while I waited to move through the busy streets.
I would probably peek into their windows while stopped at traffic lights to see what the drivers are doing instead of focusing on driving. How many people would I see texting, reading a book, or flossing their teeth? On the road, how many people do you think I would see driving with their right-turn signal on in the left lane on the highway? (I suppose that’s more annoying than funny.)
How would you pass the time if you were a truck driver? What are some of the interesting things you’ve seen other drivers doing while behind the wheel?
