How many of you here love truckers? They seem to be always helping those of us in public safety. Today we were parked on the side of the road in the engine (awful weather, were on a wreck), and about half the trucks going by got into the lane next to the one we were occupying, put on their flashers, and slowed down, acting as a sort of down-stream blocker for us. Was real nice, and it happens all the time. Couple of cops I know have stories of truckers blocking in guys they're chasing, sometimes after getting a call on the CB. My theory is truckers spend a lot of time on the road, and on a deserted strech of road fire/ems/police will be their lifeline should something happen. That, or maybe they're just great guys lol. Just wanted thoughts/opinions/ask some you know and get their views. Note: Posted in both cop talk and fire/ems talk.
