The life of the over-the-road trucker can be a bit scary at times ... and we're not talking about looking for a parking space as the amount of driving time on your ELD creeps toward zero, the behavior of some four-wheelers, or driving through the Rockies in January. 

Nope, what we're talking about is a bit more otherworldly. Ghosts. Strange visions. Specters. Spooky sideroads. Messages from beyond the grave. The sorts of things that haunt some highways and are scarier than driving through Atlanta at rush hour.

More than a few drivers had tales to tell a few years ago when we sought stories of haunted highways. We got those stories out of the Truckers News crypt and share them here again just in time for Halloween.   

So, enjoy ... but you may want to leave the lights on when you do.
