Cup of Hot Coffee
On National Coffee Day (Tuesday, Sept. 29), motorists can receive free or discounted coffee at many truck stops and travel centers.

Tuesday, Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day. Whether you call it java, joe or coffee, drink it plain or “doctored” with sugar and cream, it’s no secret that this caffeinated beverage is a favorite of truckers across the U.S. and Canada.
