• Hammerdown Monday: BlackBerry Traffic



    On time. It's not just a jazzy catch phrase in the trucking industry. It's an absolute necessity. Kinda like breathing. If ya want to live, you gotta keep breathing. To keep your company alive, you gotta be on time.

    Today I'm gonna let you greenhorns (noobs) in on a secret. How do us drivers make sure we get there on time? A Rand McNally Motorcarriers road atlas, a calculator, a notepad, and an intimate knowledge of Interstate highways and US highways. Or, at least that's how we used to do it, back when cellphones weren't smart.

    Hammerdown Monday is written and posted every other Monday, by ADPerdue, a genuine Long Haul Trucker with eight years on the road, recently certified as having over one million accident and ticket free miles, and a bona fide BlackBerry junkie. Apps are rated from one gear to ten gears, with one meaning "don't use this app even if they pay ya", and ten meaning "if you don't have this app yet, you need some serious head shrinkin".
