We've all seen road signs about how bridges/overpasses freeze before the rest of the road...here is a great example from this morning - the overpass is snow covered while the rest of the road has no snow accumulation. This is especially common early in the cold season (like now). The reason is that our ground temperatures remain relatively warm (at least above freezing), because it takes a prolonged period of cold weather to have frozen ground. Thus, much of the road surface is being warmed more from the ground beneath it. On bridges and overpasses however, the road surface is surrounded by the (cold) air, making snow or ice accumulation possible.

Hello truckers on Rt 31 in Pennington NJ. There is a food truck (Latin Bites) located in front of Cream King, Rt 31, Pennington, NJ. He is operating at that location from Tuesdays -Sundays - every week from 11a-6p. You can pull into the parking lot and get off of the road (Rt 31) and grab lunch and dinner on your route. Please share this post with your fellow truck drivers to spread the word. If you have any questions, please let me know - Nancy O'Leary - Food Truck Lady. www.foodtrucklady.com Thanks
Lets make this real!! National Trucking Day, October 4th (10-4). A day of appreciation to trucking professionals As our country and world deal with the impacts of the COVID19 we are seeing how critical and important those in the trucking industry are to our way of life. The are the lifeblood to our supply chain in many ways. Those in the trucking industry continue to move the goods to stock our grocery store shelves even at an increased risk of contracting the COVID19 virus. Simply put, we should create a federal holiday on October 4th (10 - 4) for the Trucking Industry. They are an industry that is often underappreciated. And as we see first hand how vital they are it is evident that the appreciation they deserve is much, much greater. Giving them a federal holiday to be recognized for the vital, difficult, and at times dangerous work they do is well deserved. If this petition gets 99,999 signatures by April 23, 2020, the White House will review it and respond! You can view and sign the petition here:
**GRAPHIC CONTENT** A HUGE thank you to New Jersey State Police Trooper Robert Tarleton and State Police Lieutenant Edward Ryer for their courageous act of heroism to save a driver from a burning truck last week.

TAT and the Freedom Drivers Project were in Union, NJ last Thursday at Kean University to conduct a Coalition Build meeting. Key partners included the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, the Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association, the New Jersey Motor Truck Association and Busing on the Lookout. The day's event brought together stakeholders from state and government agencies, law enforcement and leaders from the trucking, truck stop and bus industries. The discussion at the end of the meeting was lively with many people engaged in the issue and talking about future training and partnership opportunities. Bringing industry and law enforcement together around the crime of human trafficking at the local level is what TAT's Coalition Builds are all about!
