Due to the sheer size of their vehicles, truck drivers arguably have a special responsibility to keep fellow motorists safe. Trucker Daisy Delaney certainly seems to feel this way anyhow. You see, in February 2018 she took to Facebook to send out a warning to everyone on the road. And given the dangers posed by her potentially lethal cargo, Delaney’s important message soon went viral.

Based in Sheridan, Wyoming, Delaney is a trucker with a difference. How? Well, back in the summer of 2016 she shot to fame on social media thanks to her Facebook Live posts.

Such was the positive impact of Delaney’s posts, in fact, that her rise to online fame was picked up by Canada’s CTV in August 2016. “As far as just interaction on a regular basis, we’ve all pretty much gone to our cellphones,” she told the network. “And so the videos have really helped out a lot, because it gives a little bit more of a personal touch than just a text message or phone call.”
