Video: When I grow up, I wanna work in trucking

It’s Truck Driver Appreciation Week: a time for all of us to recognize those who spend long, lonely hours on the road to bring us life’s essentials.

When you were a kid, you may not have dreamed of becoming a professional driver — or a dispatcher, or a transportation intermediary. Here are some kids who do. DAT dedicates this video to all the drivers who endure time away from home, dead-head miles, waiting at loading docks, and drinking truck-stop coffee.
