When tractor-trailers become the target of drivers trying to kill themselves - Nova Scotia - CBC News

Driving a tractor-trailer truck has its challenges, but one that's seldom talked about is when big rigs become the targets of people who want to end their own lives.

New statistics provided by Nova Scotia RCMP show how frequently people travelling roads and highways under RCMP jurisdiction use vehicles to kill themselves.

Need a Job? We're Looking for 890,000 New Truck Drivers - Trucker Blog

Every business needs to plot a future with regards to keeping enough employees to do the job, especially if the business is growing. In the long term, an industry that is successful must make sure that during growth and retirement, there are always enough people to step in and fill the void. The more successful the business, the greater the growth and the more employees that need to be hired. It’s a simple equation that also pertains to the trucking industry as well.

We Have a Situation Here

The situation is this. Over the course of the next year, the trucking industry will need to hire about 73,000 new drivers just to keep up with the burgeoning economy. In fact, just to make ends meet for now, an additional 47,000 plus drivers this year would be ideal to keep up with customers orders in the coming months. If we take this further down the road, and if the industry keeps growing as it has been, an additional 175,000 truckers will need to be hired, just to keep pace, by 2024! And those figures are just for new trucker hires.

We Have a Bigger Situation Here

The bigger situation is this. When you take into account the average age of truckers on the road today, which is 49 years old, in the upcoming decade there are going to be a lot of people ready to retire. While all of that is fine and good, those truckers must also need to be replaced, to the tune of nearly 900,000 new drivers. That averages somewhere around 89,000 per year!

Needless to say, if a relative, a friend or a friend of a friend ever wanted to be a trucker, there is no better time than now.

Winter Wildlife Watch: The Majestic Moose | TranBC


The low visibility of moose at night is wise to consider now, with daylight hours at their shortest. And if you live or travel in northern B.C., where about 70 per cent of B.C.’s approximately 210,000 moose dwell, you’ve got the longest hours of darkness in the province. -
