New Book Seeks to Improve Interaction between Motorists and Commercial Drivers

May 17, 2010 - Press Release

CROSSVILLE, TN - Semi-Aware by Toby W. Bogard aims to provide crucial information on how the normal, everyday driver of a noncommercial vehicle can drive safely around commercial vehicles.

As a long haul trucker, Bogard has spent years watching and noting more effective and safer ways for motorists and commercial drivers to interact on the roads to reduce accidents and improve overall safety.

In Semi-Aware, Bogard's goal is to help lower the number of accidents that occur every day on the roads and highways.

Bogard intends to help make everyone that drives a noncommercial vehicle more aware of the laws, limitations and actions that affect commercial vehicle drivers on a daily basis.

"In effect, I wrote the book to make everyday drivers semi-aware," he says. "People want their products delivered safely, and I want to get them there safely. If we all work together, everyone wins."

Semi-Aware is available for sale online at and other channels.
