With the shortage of safe and secure parking for our nation's truck drivers back in the news, join us as we discuss the dangers drivers face every day because of the lack of safe truck parking availability.
Who is responsible for putting drivers at added risk? Where are the most difficult areas to find truck parking? How are regulations adding to the already dangerous parking situations? Who doesn't want to see more available truck parking?
Our guests include Hope Rivenburg of Jason's Law, Desiree Wood of Real Women in Trucking and our special guests, Ashley Boeglin and David Clark, wife and father-in-law of Michael Boeglin.

Topic: Is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Truck Drivers?
Virginia Chomo, a volunteer of Trucker Charity,
will be our guest to discuss her discovery that there exist no carbon monoxide detectors for semi-trucks, despite standards that require the device in homes, boats, RV's and airplanes.
Truckers live in their trucks; most of them must idle for comfort control or have an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) that reduces emissions. Either way, emissions are still an effect to the occupants.
Thanks to Virginia's work, the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is now developing and setting standards for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors with truckers in mind.
Join us as she shares her findings and her work with manufacturers regarding the special needs of these detectors as related to semis.

Topic: Safety Cameras That Face Truck Drivers Inside The Cab of the Truck.
Truck Drivers discuss the trend at some carriers to install inward facing cameras that are said to improve safety. Though many employers now film employees at work for various reasons which include, safety, security, to monitor theft and performance, long haul truck drivers essentially live in their workplace and feel their privacy is being violated. What do you think?
Join our discussion as we chat with driver Ralph Acocella Jr. in a roundtable discussion about his experience working for a carrier with the inward facing cameras and how they were used in practice.
One more question to add to your list when you interview carriers you are considering working for.

For our final show of 2012, we continue our series on truck driver health with our special guest, Laura Anne Kilpatrick, a professional driver and founder of the American Truck Drivers Diabetes Association.
As a truck driver with Type 2 diabetes, Laura realized that many in the medical profession did not understand the trucking lifestyle and she had to learn on her own how to successfully manage the disease while living life on the road.
She founded the ATDDA in order to provide education, encouragement and support for those fellow drivers who may still be struggling in managing their diabetes with their driving career.
She was first diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 1987 at the age of 19 and has been truck driving since 1998. Having studied diabetes and nutrition indepth since the early 1990's, she also shares her experiences with other truckers through her blog: 18 Wheelin' with Diabetes.
Discussion will include the different types and causes of diabetes, treatment, diabetes myths, the importance of nutrition, reducing carbohydrates and diabetes management.
We cover 2 topics in our discussion in the episode of the Women Truckers Network phone conference.
The Wall Street Journal Article on Truck Parking called "Too Many Trucks, Too Little Parking" PLUS Recent CDL Student Issues that Involve Schools Who May Be Taking Advantage of the Workforce Investment Act Voucher Grant without delivering training and other CDL Student questions and concerns.
Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.
