About ‘The City Never Sleeps’
This free series is dedicated to representing truck drivers in the US in their true light. In this era where truck driving jobs are in high demand, this is a great way to spread the word about the industry. Truck drivers are some of the hardest working people in the US and they deserve some recognition. This film series by Mack Trucks is a great way to support truck drivers and give them some much-needed credit for a job well done.
The film is a documentary style video available in eight episodes online without a subscription. According to John Walsh, Mack Trucks Vice President of Marketing, “Our goal with RoadLife is to tell the stories of men and women whose stories aren’t often told, but are so vital to the success of society. New York City, America’s largest city, was the perfect place to start.” It will be interesting to see if this series spreads throughout the rest of the US.
