About The Tim Ridley Show
Part inspirational uplift and part emotional cup of coffee, The Tim Ridley Show starts your early morning drive by inviting you to answer a relevant question of the day. Hosted by former trucker and current cheerful chaplain Dr. Tim Ridley, the show is an opportunity to offer shout outs and safety tips to your fellow drivers, reminding them that they are not alone out there.
QOD: Tell us about some of your trucking bloopers - in and out of the truck.
Back by popular demand: Most of us have seen T.V. bloopers, and truck drivers have bloopers too--like hooking to a trailer and forgetting to raise the landing gear or dropping a trailer and forgetting to unhook the air and electrical lines. Bloopers can and probably have happened to the best of us.
QOD: If you had the authority, how would you bring more awareness of the dangers to texting drivers?
There was a time when looking out for drunk and impaired drivers was at the forefront of a trucker’s mind. Now there’s a bigger hazard. Texting drivers are six times more likely to cause an accident than drunk drivers.

QOD: Do you take selfies? How many selfies do you take daily?
