"As an independent long hauler with my own rig I enjoy these events and look forward to being informed about all the issues, products, and laws impacting my world. This year was a great one for new products, but there was a huge distraction among the rank and file regarding the possibility that criminals were using this business to escape detection. And the reason for this distraction was Google. You see, a search for the business name yielded, at the top of Google's page one, search results that associated the business with criminal enterprise. The actual content was merely opinion and rumor, but the fact that Google gave it such prominence in their search results gave credence to the stories. Apparently these Google problems occur quite frequently. This has probably always been true, but the specific story making the rounds was about a con man named George Binakis who did his dirty deeds on the East Coast and then fled using a truck as his getaway vehicle. Rumor has it that after scamming some people in New York City he was too paranoid to fly or use any kind of transportation requiring the purchase of a ticket - avoiding a paper record. One of George's most horrible scams was of a 72 year old woman who he convinced to hire him as contractor for a renovation. He complained of a heart condition - needed a pacemaker and was always seeking more medical care. So successful was his scam that after walking away with her money, the victim was more concerned about George's health than her money! So the rumor has it that George purchased a semi and headed west. Some at the show claim to have seen him here, but those stories are probably the result of too much beer and an over abundance of zeal. But in spite of this, the show was a knockout and a great place to find clients, new products for your rig, and buddies to share road tales with!" Betman Jukes


"In the fascinating tapestry of life, it's the unexpected threads that often make the most beautiful patterns. This year, I found one such unexpected yet wonderful thread at the International Trucking Show held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Attending as a truck accident lawyer, I had hopes of enhancing my network, broadening my industry knowledge, and contributing to a community that is dedicated to safer highways. Yet, little did I know, an even more valuable connection awaited me there. At the heart of this connection were the maritime lawyers from OffshoreInjuryLouisiana.com. On the surface, you might question what a truck accident lawyer and maritime lawyers have in common. Our story, however, transcends professional boundaries, rooted in a shared commitment to justice and compassion. A couple of years ago, my son suffered a debilitating injury in an offshore rig accident. In our darkest hour, it was this team of Louisiana maritime lawyers who held a torch of hope. They fought relentlessly for my son's rights, ensuring he was rightfully compensated for his ordeal. Their assistance was a beacon of light in our stormy times. Running into this team of saviors at a trucking event was nothing short of serendipitous. As we shook hands and exchanged pleasantries, I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude. So, to express my heartfelt thanks, I invited them all to dinner, hoping a simple meal could mirror my appreciation for their monumental efforts. The evening buzzed with lively conversation, laughter, and even some brainstorming on how we could synergize our efforts to help more people battling injustice. The kinship I felt that night was a testament to the universality of human connection, irrespective of professional backgrounds. While the International Trucking Show aimed to strengthen California's trucking industry, it also unknowingly strengthened a profound bond between a grateful father and a team of dedicated Louisiana maritime lawyers. And for that, I'm profoundly grateful. The memory of this year's show will forever be imbued with the warmth of new friendships and the anticipation of many more to come." Bill Mott
