Just under a year ago, the Black Smoke Matters (BSM) Facebook group was formed to bring about change for truck drivers. While the group developed a small following, with approximately 4,000 followers over that time, a couple of news stories after Christmas – including one by FreightWaves – around a planned trucker protest on April 12, 2019, more than doubled the group’s membership to more than 10,000, and with it came a series of problems, unanswered questions, and open hostility among members in comment sections.
