BE PREPARED TO STOP is a documentary about our love of and absolute dependence on the great American highway. We rely on those roads and the countless big rigs rolling down them to supply us with just about everything we use every day. But this round-the-clock lifeline has become so entrenched in our daily routines, we don't even notice it any more. Now that neglect is reaching a crisis point. Roads and bridges are failing; safety concerns are mounting; skilled drivers are retiring; government is at a standstill. In order to raise awareness about the impact the impending breakdown will have on all our lives, BE PREPARED TO STOP aims to not only explain the issues but also to energize stakeholders to push for solutions that will improve the current situation and build towards a secure future. Written by Marijane Miller & Jennifer Clymer

Roads & bridges require a great deal of sand to build- which is quickly becoming a real threat worldwide. We ALL are losing sand and shoreline due to overuse for the purpose of building stuff (roads, bridges, buildings ect).

I would like to have seen the filmmaker touch on the shortage of sand -it is now a black market enterprise. It operates like the mafia, complete with murders or whatever it takes.

Some countries have started taking the sand from the ocean floor and killing off the habitat and all that depends on it.

I appreciate the trucking industry, but we must find a better solution in fixing our infrastructure.
