My research report entails the correlation between truck drivers, their way of life and what importance they have, and how this line of work may face extinction due self-driving cars. People are looking toward fully autonomous cars, for “more than 90 percent of all traffic accidents are the result of human error” (http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?sid=2467de67-bb76-4bdc-ad...).
For a job that requires one to be on the road in solitude for long periods of time, there are still aspects that make truck driving appealing, according to this article. Truckers often start their day out early, get their assignment, make any repairs to their trucks, and set out on the open road. People, typically men, find this job appealing for they get to work on cars and are in control the entire time.
Through my research, I found that there are approximately 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States alone. According to Shmoop, their jobs range from interstate drivers that cover thousands of miles a day, hauling frozen goods to furniture, to bullrack drivers that haul livestock locally around their hometowns. These truck drivers work for 11 hours in a 14 hour period and must log their hours 24/7. Drivers are either paid by the hour, load, or by the mile.
I am going to write about my truck. When I first got my truck I was in 8th grade, and I bought it with my own money. I bought it from my dad’s friend for $5,000. My truck is a 1994 Chevy, kind of lowered, and has a 5.0L 305 engine, with a 15 inch rims. I want to know how much money this type of truck is selling for today and is it a popular truck to own.
This is my second print and it was one of my hardest one’s because it took a lot of tries to get the burning on the truck to come in so you could see the Fed-ex sign. I did about 5 test strips and finally got it focused as best as I could and the when I did the big print the sign on the truck was really white so my second big print I burned it for 15 extra seconds but that was still white, so on my third print I burned it 25 seconds and that came out the best so that was my final print. From making this print I learned that really white area take a lot longer to burn. I think first that this picture has really good diagonals in the rocks behind the truck.
People are always afraid of what they do not understand. Whether it is embodied as a member of a different race, a different haircut, a new piece of technology, or countless other mediums, it matters not. And it seemingly always to the younger generation (with technology anyway) to bear the responsibility of convincing the established that sometimes change = progress.
