Truck Drivers Money Saving Tips Email Newsletter
November 2010 -- Issue #016
we provide real world tips that help professional truck drivers save
hard-earned money and personal reporting about products and services
for use on the road.
We share what we have learned
about saving money on the road and ask
professional truck drivers to do the
same. In other words...
With your help, we're looking to expand our website to
provide money saving information on lots of different topics --
information that provides tangible value to you and
other professional drivers everywhere.
Reviews Requested and Completed
We seek reviews of products,
parts, and truck
stops on our site.
Among the many reviews we have performed on our site are
- truck stop showers,
- truck stop fuel islands and
- truck stop restaurants.
As a service to you, we have completed these
reviews since our last newsletter:
We perform reviews based on our own
personal set of expectations. We fully recognize that what one driver
expects, another may not and vice versa. If you, as a professional
driver, disagree with a review,
please feel free to submit one of your own.

- The Real Cost of Your Debt
The majority of people who walk, talk and breathe also carry debt.
Whether it's a mortgage, a student loan, a car loan - or the good (bad)
old credit card debt, most Americans at some point in their lives
borrow. And when that time comes for you, it pays off - literally - to
understand how much that debt truly costs you. ...
- Extra tolls to hit hauliers
IrishTrucker.com - As if there was not enough overheads in the haulage
industry, the government's latest plans to add more tolls to the
country's motorways is a further blow to the road transport industry.
A number of measures are being put forward to the
government for recommendation by the National Roads Authority and the
addition of a number of tolls is the main talking point.

Where's the Content?
As happens from time to time, each of us needs to deal
with an urgent family matter. From mid-October to late November, we had
such a situation. That's why we haven't been able to research, write
and publish much info on our website during that time -- or do the
reviews we've been in the habit of doing.
However, we were
able to pre-schedule a Truck Drivers Money Saving Tip or Truck Drivers
Money Saving Inquiry -- for our Twitter account
weekday during that time.

We sure look forward to resuming the publication of
money saving articles soon. Of course, we welcome your content, too!
We wish you safe travels and lots of money
opportunities on the road.
