    Hello my name is Autumn Mason, I am working on a documentary film about child sex slavery in America. Through our research we heard that there is prostitution that goes on in truck stops and that some of those prostitutes are really underage girls. We want to see what the "experts" are talking about and if there is any evidence of what they are claiming. I was wondering if you would be willing to take me and one of our cameramen around with you to help us really understand the chatter on the CB radio as well as just how the whole thing with the 'lot lizards' work. We could meet you anywhere and would just love to ride along with you a night or two.

    Thank you for considering and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Autumn

    Prostitution goes on all over the place, not just truck stops.
    Why do you want to shed a bad light on truckers, just walk down the street of most any major metro city and film all the prostitutes and crap you like...leave the truckers out of it.

    No doubt! The child prostitution is a bigger problem in many areas of this country than it is in the trucking industry.

    Here's the thing...for the most part, there are very few places where you can find lot lizards (prostitutes) these days.

    I have been a driver, myself, and was approached MAYBE 3 times. I've been on the truck with my husband for 4 years, now, and he has been approached a hand full of times in that time span, once when the gal could plainly see me.

    If you'd like to see what it's like "out there", for prostitutes, especially those underage, you might consider asking to "ride-along" with some of these charitable agencies that roam the well-known areas, trying to help these girls get off the street.
    For, the streets are where you are going to find these girls, NOT at truck stops.

    Sure, there are LL's at a few truck stops, but these are mostly the older, more drug-addicted, used-up, and desperate "ladies of the night". Not the young, innocent, underage girls you seek to document.

    You shouldn't talk about yourself like that darlin' cause we know it just ain't true!:biggrin_25525:

    I'm like MT, get tired of people that have no clue about the truth of the industry trying to make it sound like this industry is so rotten.

    In the time I was out on the road, I never saw one lot lizard. Then again, I am a female. The funniest thing was my first truck had one of those 'No Lot Lizards' stickers on it when it was given to me! I just about fell over laughing when I saw that.:biggrin_2559:

    I've come across some run-aways that look to be around 15-18 years old looking for a ride, but never have come across any prostitutes that looked underaged, even in the border towns.
