Truck driver risk was in full view as thousands of cars were stuck in Atlanta during a two-inch snowfall this winter. There were more than 1,200 accidents. Residents couldn’t get home, and it became the lead story on national TV. Truck drivers were told to stay out of Georgia. From many points of view, it was a debacle. Two weeks later, winter came again to the South, but this time the answer was: Stay off the roads.
