America's highways are wide open for terrorist attack.
"Given that most terrorist attacks worldwide involve trucks, America is poorly prepared to deal with this likely and impending threat," states CEO Terry M. Evans of Fleet Defender Consulting Services, LLC.
According to CEO Evans, the country has literally surrendered it's highways to terrorists. European allies have long since completed the basics, such has fingerprinting all CDL truck drivers. The Untied States, on the other hand, has done little to protect the country from such an obvious threat.
"The government has justly provided millions to fund the Highway Watch Program, an excellent awareness training program, yet we have no idea who we are actually providing the training to." reports CEO Evans. "We essentially have placed the cart before the horse."
Today, given our lack of even the simplest security screening, it would be incredibly easy for terrorists to gain legal access to tractor trailers and cripple the nation's highways along with our economy. "What measures do we have in place today that would stop a terrorist from obtaining a CDL license?" asks Mr. Evans.
"The reality is that we have little in place to protect ourselves from the inevitable threat of terrorism using trucks," claims CEO Evans. For more information or to lend assistance with this serious threat, visit http://www.fleetdefender.com.
