They are a well spring of knowledge, everything from avoiding bears and efficient peeing to lookin out for lot lizards and cracker heads.

Turns out a shocking number of people drive without pants

They don't just look in your vehicle though, they look out for fellow drivers too

Plus look at all the awesome references they have for cops

Smokin' scooter: a cop on a motorcycle

Smokey or smokey the bear: highway patrol

Taking pictures: a cop with a radar gun

Evil Knievel: motorcycle cop

Bear in the bushes: a cop that's hiding from view with a radar gun

Bear bite: a speeding ticket

Mama bear: female officer

Unfortunately, like every other part of our society, there are some weirdo in the trucking industry

The internet is full of stories about truckers who picked up young girls hitchhiking--not for whatever reason you're thinking right now--but because they are a father with a daughter at home. These family oriented guys are just one fraction of the trucker population though, so you probably should just, you know, not run away from home at the age of 14.
