There was a time when it was highly unusual to see a woman behind the wheel of a truck. Today, there are more women at the helm of big rigs. But scroll through social media and you may realise there are more female truckers than you thought.
Female truckers have taken to social media to show viewers what life is like for them on the road. And while viewers may have come initially for the novelty factor, they are sticking around to hear the solid advice and to be part of the communities these women are offering.
Brittney Richardson is one of the top female trucking social media celebrities right now. Richardson’s videos give viewers a glimpse of some of the daily challenges she and many other truckers face on the road – from weather emergencies and mechanical problems to traffic stops and cooking on the road. Drivers in the US can spot her driving her distinctive bright pink Volvo.
