Our fans have kindly reminded us that this week, American Trucking Associations, the largest national trade association for the trucking industry in the USA, is commemorating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.

These eye-opening figures from an ATA's press release are worth quoting here: "There are over 3.4 million professional truck drivers delivering our everyday needs nationwide. These professional men and women log more than 169 billion miles each year."

The numbers are staggering, but it's only "just" the United States. All around the globe there are millions more truck drivers who all deserve appreciation for their hard work. Without trucks and their drivers, our modern world would be simply impossible. Too often we see that people fail to recognize and appreciate this fact and concentrate instead on some of the negatives that transporting goods and supplies by trucks may bring unfortunately, while so little attention is paid to its critical importance for our everyday lives.

We would like to join the celebration and show you a couple of truck paintjobs that are going to be a part of the initial release of American Truck Simulator.

I really like the paintjob on that Kenworth. If only there were some subliminal messages about the release in those screenshots.

ATS is looking great at the moment! Hopefully the release date isn't going to be kept secret much longer :angry12:

I noticed they are re-using the Scandinavian quarry prefab, a bit disappointing, I would imagine an American quarry would be much larger than that, but other than that looks nice :).

Beautiful shots! Can't wait for the release, although, I drive IRL now, so I can probably wait a little longer! XD

I think it's the other way around, ATS prefabs have been used in Scandinavia DLC.
