State troopers across the nation, including those in Kansas and Tennessee, have taken to law-enforcement-semis in order to catch unsafe drivers. According to Fox News, truck driving troopers are out to stop distracted and dangerous drivers who endanger truckers and others on the road.
The troopers are not driving ordinary big rigs. The trucks are equipped with dash cams and radar guns to catch texters, speeders, and other unsafe drivers in the act. The view from the cab gives troopers a bird eye’s view of those pesky cell phones and risky drivers, and helps law enforcement crack down especially on cars that endanger truckers.
Although it is not a covert operation — the semis are outfitted with law enforcement decals and blue light bars — the troopers often contact other officers who pull over the drivers, so they don’t always have to roll up behind someone and stop on the side of the road in a big rig.
What do you think? Do you think that trucking cops will reduce the number of dangerous drivers that give truckers headaches?? Leave a comment and tell us what you think!!
