    This forum used to be packed with repeat questions on an hourly basis. Now the same topics from a month ago are still on the first page in the New Driver forum.

    Check around for Rod Serling.
    You’re obviously in The Twilight Zone.

    Maybe potential or new drivers read first then decide not to post because they see so much from experienced drivers telling them trucking is horrible and will destroy their lives and families, so they give up.

    The only thing trucking did to destroy my life is that I was totally satisfied with staying within my small hometown. Now when I am at home I think of all of the amazing places I rather be that I get to visit in my truck.

    It’s been at least a day without a drug test question. New record?

    It’s the “Reefer Madness” of the new century. But flatbed and tanker don’t lead to harder trucking.

    It's been at least an hour without asking if guns are allowed in the truck

    MAYBE, there are no new drivers. Or at least not those who can write, read and ask questions.
     
    Coover, Dave_in_AZ, Bakerman and 4 others Thank this.

    Maybe we ran out of new drivers who actually speak and understand English.

    How many diffrent topics do you want to see? Spend any amount of time here and you see maybe 5 or 6 basic questions.
