American truckers : The Ruthless Law of the highways – Documentary

At the wheel of huge semi-trailers, the American truckers swallow the miles. Their movements are almost as animated as those of the cowboys of the Far West. To keep up with their infernal cadences, more and more people use amphetamines. At their heels, the state troopers, police officers of the road, lead the hard life to them. Runs, pursuits, unexpected checks: with what tricks do the truckers foil these bitumen justicians? They sit in service stations big as cities, some of which have nothing to envy to the towns without faith or law of the westerns. Endemic prostitution, robberies and even routine serial killers give the forces of order trouble. How do truckers organize themselves to survive in this jungle dominated by the law of the strongest?

    What a load of bullshit. This is just over the top sensationalism. I drive a truck myself, and it's not even like that.

    This documentary is grossly stereotypical and inaccurate. Trucking has been a part of my family and I have been around truckers my whole life. Most are decent, law abiding, professional and courteous.

    Drove 23 years over the road and what this missed, there is a sense of family between truckers. There's a lot of good people driving but there's a lot of trash also. It's a hard way to make a living and it's not for the weak. Ran east coast mainly. Started 10/15/1990. First run out was to Saginaw Michigan and never looked back. Raised a family on it. Later taters!

    this is to trucking what CNN is to news, or Black Gold was to roughnecking.

    Yes…MUHAHAHAHAHA I only drive my truck after snorting at least two lines of speed, one of coke, and after downing a six pack of beer.
    That's the only way I can stay awake after blowing all my money on hookers and bribing the weigh masters to allow me across the scales with my extra six thousand pounds of heroin bound for those elementary schools where I pick up my load of pre-teens headed to those whore houses in Mexico, HAHAHAHAHA!
    This is the dumbest video I've ever seen, I mean really, "to keep up with their INFERNAL CADENCES…"

    the cop – constable bootlique – and his statement we think we own the road… i've never come across shit like that in all my years driving truck. the ex-lot lizard: honey, don't quit yer day job. most guys i've ever seen in a truck stop avoid the lot lizards like the plague – They Are Dangerous.

    as for the music, the disjointed stories – unexplained – i fail to see how this is any kinda doc. fail.

    This is fantastically not how trucking is today. 99% of us are regularly drug tested, do not pick up hookers, are definately rebels, but not outlaws. Hammer down!

    Truck driving is an honorable profession and a huge majority of the drivers are good, honest Americans who work for a living and pay their taxes.  The problem with this film is that it take the 0.1% and makes them look like they represent a larger segment than they actually do.  Yellow journalism at its best.

    What a shit show of a documentary, nothing informative at all really except for a bunch of misleading bullshit.  There are bad people in all fields of work.  Talking about how bad truck drivers are how about all the crooked fucking cops out there and the bullshit they're involved in.  Don't waste your time watching this video, its garbage.

    anti-trucking propaganda. What a bunch of bull shit. Truckers are under enough stress. You bastards want your average joe to think all truckers are crazy and irresponsible. You are the scum bags. Not the truckers.

    perhaps the industry creates the problem by paying per the mile. if these drivers had hourly pay they likely wouldnt take the foolish risks. my company pays per the mile, but i swear he gives raises if you speed for him. sorry keep my pay where it is if you must. i am not speeding fast enough to get a ticket, certainly not fast enough to be a danger to the general public.
