Does anyone know the percentage of solo women drivers today? When I ran all 48 and Canada back in the 1980’s, a safety director told me that only nine percent of drivers were women and, of that nine, only three percent ran solo. I was one of the three percent. Back then, 53-foot trailers were not allowed on the dirty side except on the interstates. I pulled a few in my day, mostly out west, but now they’re standard. There were no computers, no cell phones, no automatic transmissions, and company drivers did NOT have jake brakes. You either knew how to handle a truck or you didn’t. Things have really changed!
