Transitioning To More Cross-Country Trips? How Can You Make Your Rig Secure?

If you're an over the road (OTR) trucker who has recently taken on a new cross-country route, you may be excited at the earning opportunity that awaits you. Although these routes don't always permit as much time at home as regional routes, they do offer the opportunity to earn overtime pay at a multiplier of your base hourly rate. However, sleeping in your rig rather than your comfortable bed at home can be an adjustment, particularly if you're concerned about your physical safety while holed up at a deserted truck stop.
