TORONTO, Ont. – About 72% of surveyed Today’s Trucking readers believe a truck’s entertainment options can be a valuable recruiting or retention tool – but they’re still looking for better options in the cab.
Forty-four percent of the sample group rated the entertainment options no higher than a three on a scale of one to five, our monthly Pulse Survey found.
While AM/FM radios are the most common entertainment option, available to 95% of those surveyed, satellite radio can now be found in more than half (58%) of units. Music also remains to most preferred form of entertainment, attracting 42% of readers compared to 20% who are pulled into talk radio and 14% who follow news broadcasts.
In a side question, 63% of those surveyed ranked Smokey and the Bandit as the top trucking movie of all time, followed by Convoy (20%), Mad Max: Fury Road (5%), White Line Fever (4%), and They Drive by Night (3%).
