Commercial Trucking Traffic Increasing
Local commercial truck drivers in Santa Maria have reported working additional hours during the current pandemic coronavirus crisis. According to KEYT ABC News Channel Three, the commercial trucking industry is just one of the many essential workforces that is steadily working through this difficult time. Drivers on the road can expect to see big rigs, semi-trucks, and tractor-trailers out on local roadways in Santa Maria and across the State of California.
Truck drivers are busy delivering food and supplies to grocery stores, big box stores, and other retail shops. The need for these supplies has become critical in many communities, so these truck drivers are working more hours than usual. It remains to be seen if the trucking industry can safely support the continued demand for the restocking of necessary supplies to shops throughout the nation.
