    Back to topic.

    Thats not much money in American dollars for all that. He should find something else to get into.

    Not everyone can be a trucker. Or should. The things listed on the article come part and parcel with the job. You can do very much to fight being dirty by maintaining disclipined higene and disinfected truck and so on. As far as human needs a good cathouse will take care of that in a short time for a fee. I don't recommend that though. You can do very much with other people on time off with a variety of things to do. Some of which is a little investment of money. I can hire a pilot, fuel and plane per hour and map out a cross country exercise so I can immerse myself into the sky and everything navigation for a while. Pilot has his own workload. But we will finish the exercise and it will be a good day.

    It beats sitting in the bunk going boo hoo woe is me Im lonely. YAH right. Get out there and have some fun.

    Chinese truckers have many of the same problems we have.
    Limited parking.
    Corrupt towing companies. Tow companies can't tow trucks that are on the shoulder of the freeway, broken down, tire blowout, etc. unless grass is touching the tires. So, the tow companies kick some grass against a tire and take a picture of it, then tow the truck.
    The ones I've seen over there seem to be very safe overall, except the dump truck drivers. The dump truck drivers speed, run stop signs and traffic lights, cut people off, tail gate, etc.
