"Smokey" or "bear" is trucker slang for a police officer. If you hear someone warn of a "bear trap", that means to mind your speed, because there's a cop with a radar gun up ahead. If someone is complaining of a "turtle race" the speed limit has dropped below 45 mph. A "cash box" is a toll booth and a "suicide jockey" is a trucker hauling something dangerous like explosives. If someone warns that you're driving an "angry kangaroo", that means you should stop and fix your blown headlight. A "kiddie car" or a "winkin' blinkin' " is a school bus and a "stack of bricks" is a house. Hearing words like these tossed back and forth over the radio makes me smile. I smile because I know it's a community that I'm a part of. A community that'll look out for and help one another. And I smile because some of the phrases sound downright funny!
