About This Quiz

10-4 Good buddy! I just passed a "Blinkin Winkin" on the "Double Deuce."

CB radio was a massive form of communication back in the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's! And not just for truckers, but also for people sitting at home in their garages. A massive community sprung up all over the world, but especially in the United States. And CB-radios gave truckers a chance to stay in communication with each other. A great thing indeed to help with the loneliness of the long roads they had to travel transporting goods up and down the country.

CB radios were so popular that even a first lady had a handle. That's right, Betty Ford, wife of President Gerald Ford had a CB handle. And what was it? First mama! How apt.

And with this form of communication's rise in popularity, a new way of speaking quickly followed. Terms sprung up for all manner of things with many of them reserved for police in every form. Cities received new names, some vehicles were rebranded and even putting in gas became known as putting in "motion lotion."

So in this quiz, we are going to test your knowledge of CB-lingo to the fullest!

Do you have what it takes to ace this test, Good Neighbor?
