And so it begins! Truck drivers across the United States have begun refusing to deliver loads to cities whose police departments have been defunded. Can you even blame them? I wouldn't deliver there either!
According to a report on CDL Life, truck drivers are fearful of what could be in store if they deliver to cities without law and order. The job is already one of the most dangerous in the country, the U.S. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reported tin 2018.
Truck drivers have spent the last several months on the front lines as the world was shut down for a global pandemic and now they are expected to face the mobs too? Not a chance.
Seventy-seven percent of truck drivers say they will refuse to deliver freight to cities with defunded police departments.
Truck drivers have been voicing their concerns on the CDLLife App. After reading about their concerns, CDLLife posted a poll on the app.
We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”
As of June 13, 2020, we’ve had over 1,283 respondents and 79% say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.
These are some of their responses:
“…if something was to happen and you have to take matters into your own hands, and then you risk being prosecuted for protecting yourself.”
“This is not an area you need to act fearless and think you you’d look like a fool for saying no…Imagine what kind of fool you look like for driving into a hot spot and putting your life in danger.”
“I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.”
“Simple. We may not like it all the time, but laws and order is necessary.”
“Most places we go already can be dicy an about only time you see a cop is when lights is on behind you.”
“For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.”
*Updated to reflect sample size. According to the National Council of Public Polling, “the average poll has a sample size of 1,000 adults.”
Perhaps these cities should take things like this into considerations as well when they are acting like idiots.
