10 Codes

As everyone knows, truckers have pretty much developed their own language on the CB. A good way to begin learning "Trucker lingo" is by getting to know the 10-codes. With no official listing of the 10-codes, we are providing the "unofficial" codes . This can definately be a great help for those of you just getting ready to begin your career as a trucker.
