Rail Safety Week ‘22 with Operation Lifesaver — WTT

On today’s episode of WHAT THE TRUCK?!? Dooner and The Dude are all about rail safety. They’re joined by Jennifer DeAngelis of Operation Lifesaver Inc., who’s here to get us on track with rail safety awareness.

In headlines, ocean rates continue to head toward Atlantis; Tesla proposes a $375 million lithium refinery for EV batteries in Texas; a trucker gets a stunning cab makeover; a trucker makes a special needs kid’s day; and more.
