Who's Your Helper? The Story of Indiana's Hoosier Helpers
"Who's Your Helper? The Story of Indiana's Hoosier Helpers" is an account of these humble driver servants and their more than 20 years of service to our state.
So much more than just tire changes and gas fill-ups, the Hoosier Helpers are risking their lives everyday in order to keep Indiana's motorists moving along our interstates as safely as possible.
We pass by them nearly everyday without a second look; a handful of heroes criss-crossing Indiana highways in search of a single broken and downtrodden motorist in need of help. And if you need them, there’s nothing more reassuring than the sight of their flashing lights pulling up behind you.
So, just who, or what, is the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Hoosier Helpers? Even for some of those motorists who have personally encountered these roadside saints, it's not always clear just how much they do for the general citizen traversing Indiana’s thoroughfares.
