A Day in the Life of a Long Haul Truck Driver

Truck drivers often have a long and demanding workday that starts early and ends late. They are usually on the road for up to 11 hours a day, with tight schedules that they must meet and the risk of being delayed due to various events. Most OTR drivers prefer to start their day early, with a big cup of coffee or an energy drink. An electronic recording device is connected to the truck's computer and collects data about their trips, such as speed, miles traveled, and running time. Truckers travel hundreds of miles a day, so it is important for them to take breaks and get out of their trucks to stretch their legs.

They should also take time for lunch or a light meal to be prepared for the second part of their day. U Drive is dedicated to helping truck drivers stay up to date on the latest news, tips, and information about trucks.
