Because of the nature of the job, it's understandable that truckers stick together like they do, offering help to their fellow drivers often.

One recent example of this has gone viral; a list of truck stops across the nation that fall under the category of "do not stop," and four of these truck stops are in Colorado.

Which Colorado Truck Stops Are On the Don't Stop List?

The viral "do not stop" list for truck drivers lists the following Colorado truck stops as places to avoid:

Love's #906, I-270 Exit 2A, Commerce City, CO 80022
