3 tips for safely driving around trucks on Greenville highways

When you are driving on Interstates 85, 185 and 385, you might be in a rush. Whether you are going to work or going to Atlanta for a night out, you need to be careful on the highway, especially around large trucks.

Common sites where bedsores occur are on the tailbone, shoulder blades, heels, backs of arms and legs, or on the hip.

What truckers need to know about required electronic driving logs

It seems like a week rarely passes without news of a horrific crash involving a semi-truck.
