Week 2 – Sir Jesse

Knights of the Road – Week 2 (Photovoice submission for Sir Jesse)

People seem to have a distorted view of truckers. We are occasionally idolized but usually thought of as nuisances. There is a huge disconnect between consumers and truckers. Everyone wants their parcel on time and is quite upset if a grocery store runs out of an item but they have no patience for the trucks on the road and are quick to point their fingers when something goes wrong.

It is hard to find people to turn to who understand the situation when their perspectives are generally so distorted.
