It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. This morning the trucking industry lost another great man. Dane Ballinger passed away this morning in a tragic accident. Dane you were taken way before your time and you will be greatly missed by so many. My heart breaks for your family and all those that were close to you. My prayers, thoughts and love are with your loved ones as they try to process this unbelievable tragedy.
I cannot stress enough the importance of road safety, whether your in a hurry, distracted or sick of looking at the back of that truck you’ve been following for however long, please think before you act. Put the phone down, your life and the life of road users around you is more important than that text you need to read or that call you need to take.
If your fatigued pull over where you can safely dont risk your life or the lives of other road users because you think you’ll be ok to make it to your destination. As a truck drivers wife, my worst fear was always getting that phone call that something had happened to my husband while on the road. Please be safe on the roads, we all want our loved ones to make it home safely. Nothing is more important than your life and the lives of those around you.
Rest in Peace Dane ❤
