SHANNON HELTON Another year has begun and the legislature is in session again. We’re already off to a great start with new additions to the OTA staff to help us out in that arena. Prep for events for this summer has already begun, before the Midwinter Conference has even happened! It’s good to see us all moving forward with 2015. This issue we get to see a bit more of Chairman Danny Smith, who is a character in himself. He has great ideas and goals for the OTA. I’m excited for him to share them with us all, and more excited to see them put into action. Bonne Karim with the Technology and Maintenance Council is a great go-getter. She never stops! Even in retirement, she promotes the TMC on the state and national level so well. The turnout they get at the Fall Technology Seminar is proof of that. Providing educational resources as well as potential job opportunities for diesel technicians is such a great service and also great exposure for the Association. Couldn’t be more proud of all the work that our members achieve every day, individually, and as a result, a whole. We’re a great group of talented, passionate people who know this industry well and want to promote its best interests. Let’s make sure we do that every day this year.

DRIVER COMPENSATION SURVEY SHOWS TRUCKING PROVIDES COMPETITIVE PAY, BENEFITS ATA
According to new data released today by the American Trucking Associations, median pay for drivers was on par with the national median for all U.S. households, and the industry offers drivers “competitive” benefits.
· While mileage-based pay was a common method, three out of four fleets used multiple methods to pay drivers including the most frequent approach, paying some drivers by the mile and some by the hour.
“The data in our Driver Compensation Study, which covered 130 fleets and more than 130,000 drivers, shows that now more than ever, trucking is an excellent career path,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “Fleets are raising pay and offering generous benefit packages in order to attract and keep their drivers in the face of a growing driver shortage.”
· Nearly 80% of truckload fleets offered drivers paid holidays.
Among the study’s key findings: · Median pay for drivers ranged from just over $46,000 for national, irregular route dry van truckload drivers to more than $73,000 for private fleet van drivers. · In seven of the nine categories of drivers covered by the survey, pay met or exceeded the U.S. median household income of just over $53,000.
Oklahoma Motor Carrier Magazine | Winter 2015
· And 80% of private carriers not only offer a 401(k) retirement plan, but match employee contributions. “As the economy grows, we are seeing an ever more competitive driver market,” Costello said. “The data in this report will be critical for fleets looking to recruit and retain the best drivers.”

FMCSA RELEASES CRASH WEIGHTING ANALYSIS The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced through the Federal Register a study that examined (1) whether Police Accident Reports provide sufficient, consistent, and reliable information to support crash weighting determinations, (2) whether a crash weighting determination process would offer an even stronger predictor of carrier crash risk than the current assessment method, and (3) how the agency might reasonably manage and support a process for making crash weighting determinations, including the acceptance of public input. The announcement invites public comment along with a request for feedback on what steps the agency should take regarding the weighting of crash data in the agency’s systems based on the carrier’s role in a crash. Presently, the agency considers all recordable crashes involving a commercial motor vehicle occurring in the preceding 24 months as an assessment within its Safety Measurement System, which quantifies the on-the-road safety performance of motor carriers to prioritize enforcement resources. Independent research has demonstrated that a motor carrier’s involvement in a crash, regardless of their role in the crash, is a strong indicator of their future crash risk. The study examined Police Accident Reports obtained from two national dataset: the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey (NMVCCS). Various statistical and analytical approaches were employed to assess crash weighting benefits including an analysis of motor carriers involved in single-vehicle fatal crashes over time. Changing the crash weights based on a motor carrier’s role in the crash did not appear to improve the ability to predict future crash rates when all crashes are considered. There also was concern about the reliability of using Police Accident Reports to make this determination. The study pointed out that implementing a crash weighting effort on a national scale would require a method for uniformly acquiring final Police Accident Reports, a process and system for uniform analysis, and a method for receiving and analyzing public input. It is estimated that the annual costs for operating a system to process Police Accident Reports, including the acceptance of public input and reviewing appeals, would be between $3.9 million and $11.2 million. The public is invited to review the full report and provide feedback.

U.S. SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION FOXX AND U.S. SENATOR INHOFE VISIT TULSA TO DISCUSS IMPROVEMENTS Oklahoma DOT
The nation’s top transportation official makes a stop in Tulsa to see firsthand Oklahoma’s progress in improving transportation corridors. United States Senator James Inhofe hosted a visit by U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx Thursday, and joined state transportation officials to discuss the state’s long-term transportation development and remaining infrastructure needs.
“Senator Inhofe has been a great advocate in the improvement of transportation infrastructure not just in Oklahoma, but nationwide,” Ridley said. “We are excited to visit with Secretary Foxx and work closely with him and other national and state leaders to continue the progress, find more permanent funding solutions and address the critical infrastructure needs that remain.”
“The recent improvements Oklahoma has made to its roads and bridges and its efforts to address its aging infrastructure are examples of what can be done by focusing efforts on transportation investment,” Foxx said, who made his second visit to Oklahoma today at Senator Inhofe’s invitation. “I look forward to working with transportation leaders throughout the country to continue our progress in repairing our transportation system and making it more efficient and safer for future generations.”
While there are nearly 2,000 projects scheduled in ODOT’s current $6.3 billion Eight Year Construction Work Plan, officials cited a roughly $8 billion backlog remaining on critically needed highway and bridge projects statewide. These unfunded areas include a segment of I-44 west of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, which is an area in need of future widening, along with bridge and interchange improvements.
Secretary Foxx and Senator Inhofe also discussed Oklahoma’s progress in transportation funding and the economic value of transportation to the state and the nation. Oklahoma Secretary of Transportation Gary Ridley, Oklahoma Department of Transportation Executive Director Mike Patterson, Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett and other dignitaries were also in attendance. "The recently completed I-44 Riverside to Yale improvements and I-244 bridge replacements over the Arkansas River in Tulsa are prime examples of Congress carrying out its Constitutional responsibility to maintain and modernize our nation’s infrastructure. It serves as a lesson of what can be accomplished when dedicated funding is used to address the critical needs of our transportation system,” Inhofe said. “Oklahoma contains portions of some of the most heavily traveled highways in the country which are vitally important for commerce. Making these critical improvements can prevent costly traffic delays and helps our transportation system operate more efficiently." Thanks to the efforts of congressional and state leaders in recent years, Oklahoma has made great strides in improving its aging transportation system with additional federal and state funds. But as state funding has become more reliable, federal funding for transportation has been less secure as Congress continues short-term efforts to maintain the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund. While recent congressional action extends funding through May 2015 and ensures continued federal funding for ongoing and planned projects in Oklahoma, a permanent solution is needed to provide the certainty required for long-term transportation planning. 14
Oklahoma Motor Carrier Magazine | Winter 2015
“This portion of I-44 between the Arkansas River and the I-244 western split was built in 1953 and is one of the oldest remaining sections of interstate on our system,” Patterson said. “Preliminary estimates show it would take around $350 million to bring it up to today’s interstate standards. It is just one example of the challenges we face statewide with our aging infrastructure and funding needs.” Oklahoma remains steadfast in providing a safe highway system as it continues towards its goal of repairing or replacing all current structurally deficient bridges by the end of the decade if funding levels continue. In 2004, Oklahoma topped national lists for bad bridges, with 1,168 highway bridges considered structurally deficient. By the end of 2013, the number of structurally deficient state highway bridges had dropped to 468 thanks to targeted funding. In addition, ODOT has plans to improve and add shoulders to 743 miles of two-lane highways and perform major improvements on 725 miles of high-volume highways and interstates in Oklahoma over the next eight years.

OKLAHOMA ECONOMY GREW IN 2014, TREASURER KEN MILLER REPORTS REVENUE DETAILS CapitolBeatOK Staff Report, capitolbeatok.com
The Oklahoma economy grew at a faster pace in calendar year 2014 than during the prior two years, State Treasurer Ken Miller said January 7 as he released the state’s monthly Gross Receipts to the Treasury Report. “The calendar year was a good one for Oklahoma’s economy with all major sources of revenue finishing the year in the black,” Miller said. “The numbers show more of our people are working and they are expressing confidence through increased consumption. “Clearly, the state economy performed well during the past 12 months. However, this new year will likely have its challenges, especially with today’s low oil prices,” he said. The growth in gross receipts during 2014 was 4.9 percent, compared to 3.2 percent in 2013 and 3.8 percent in 2012. In December, an almost 12 percent increase in income tax collections pushed the bottom line up by just shy of eight percent compared to the same month of the prior year. Total gross receipts in December, at $1.04 billion, are the largest amount collected during any December in Oklahoma history. Total monthly gross receipts were less than prior year collections only one time during 2014, and that was due to a reporting correction, not an economic factor. However, corporate income taxes missed the mark five times, finishing the year down by almost seven percent from the prior 12 months. Sales tax collections indicate a stronger Christmas shopping season than last year. December sales tax collections, reflecting sales between mid-November and mid-December, were $15.83 million or 4.3 percent higher than during the same period of 2013. Last December, sales taxes were $3.5 million or one percent higher than the same period of the prior year. OIL PRICES The revenue stream showing the biggest expansion in 2014 is the gross production tax on oil and natural gas – rising by more than 11 percent during the calendar year. After falling below collections of the same month of the prior year in November – for the first time in 19 months – gross production receipts rose in December, exceeding the prior year by just over three percent. “It seems somewhat counterintuitive to see rising extraction tax collections during a time of suppressed prices,” Miller said. “However, December receipts reflect oil field activity in 16
Oklahoma Motor Carrier Magazine | Winter 2015
October, when the spot price per barrel was $84.40 for West Texas Intermediate at Cushing. We have yet to feel the impact of the current, lower prices.” In late December, the same oil was selling for less than $55 per barrel. Gross collections won’t reflect those prices until February. Though, Miller said the full impact might be cushioned by hedge contracts at a higher per barrel price held by some production companies.
During the past 12 months, figures from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission show the number of those unemployed dropped by 20,590, while the number of people with jobs decreased by 5,140. During that time, the unemployment rate fell from 5.5 percent to 4.4 percent. The Oklahoma Business Conditions Index anticipates economic expansion in Oklahoma’s economy during the next three to six months. The index rate slipped slightly to 54 in December from November’s rate of 54.5. Numbers above 50 indicate anticipated economic growth in the coming months. DECEMBER COLLECTIONS The gross receipts report for December shows gross collections at $1.04 billion, up $76.38 million or 7.9 percent from December 2013. Gross income tax collections, a combination of personal and corporate income taxes, generated $380.78 million, an increase of $40.15 million or 11.8 percent from the previous December. Personal income tax collections for the month are $316.34 million, up $31.61 million or 11.1 percent from the prior year. Corporate collections are $64.44 million, an increase of $8.54 million or 15.3 percent. Sales tax collections, including remittances on behalf of cities and counties, total $384.31 million in December. That is $15.83 million or 4.3 percent above December 2013. Gross production taxes on oil and natural gas generated $72.09 million in December, an increase of $2.25 million or 3.2 percent from last December. Compared to November reports, gross production collections are up by $5.93 or 9 percent. Motor vehicle taxes produced $65.6 million, up by $9.96 million or 17.9 percent from the prior year.
STATE MATTERS Other collections, consisting of about 60 different sources including taxes on fuel, tobacco, horse race gambling and alcoholic beverages, produced $139.21 million during the month. That is $8.19 million or 6.3 percent more than last December.
Motor vehicle collections total $777.86 million for the period. This is an increase of $53.93 million or 7.4 percent from the trailing 12 months. Other sources generated $1.64 billion, up $84.21 million or 5.4 percent from the previous calendar year.
During 2014, gross revenue totals $12.01 billion. That is $564.79 million or 4.9 percent higher than collections in 2013. Gross income taxes generated $4.26 billion for the year, reflecting an increase of $153.86 million or 3.7 percent from the prior calendar year. Personal income tax collections total $3.72 billion, up by $193.92 million or 5.5 percent from 2013. Corporate collections are $539.56 million for the period, a decrease of $40.06 million or 6.9 percent over the previous year. Sales taxes for the year generated $4.45 billion, an increase of $184.48 million or 4.3 percent from the prior 12-months. Oil and gas gross production tax collections brought in $883.82 million during the 12 months, up by $88.32 million or 11.1 percent from the previous period.

LARGEST CONTRACT IN ODOT HISTORY AWARDED FOR I-35 INTERCHANGES IN NORMAN ODOT
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission made history at its Dec. 8 meeting with its approval of a contract for major I-35 work at two interchanges in Norman, the largest single construction contract awarded in the history of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. The contract had a $71 million base bid along with possible financial incentives for early completion for reconstruction of the north half of the I-35 interchange at SH-9 East and reconstruction of the Lindsey St. bridge as a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI). Along with the interchanges, this massive project will complete widening of the interstate to three lanes in each direction to the South Canadian River to help alleviate congestion and accommodate future traffic in the area. The two interchanges were bid together due to close proximity, but the SH-9 interchange will be completed before the Lindsey St. portion will begin. Each interchange has a separate deadline for completion, with the contractor, Sherwood Construction Co. of Tulsa, standing to earn financial incentives for finishing each interchange early and minimizing the temporary closure of 24th Ave. S.W. during SH-9 construction. Work is expected to begin in early 2015 and both interchanges should be completed in about two and a half years, with financial incentives in place for opening all interstate lanes and ramps to traffic in less than two years. Two lanes of I-35 will remain open to traffic in each direction during construction, as well as the Lindsey St. and SH-9 ramps, however some nighttime closures will be necessary. An ongoing project to reconstruct the south half of the I-35/SH-9 interchange that began in late 2013 is nearing completion and will provide a new cloverleaf ramp from southbound I-35 to eastbound SH-9. Like the new Main St. interchange in Norman, the reconstructed Lindsey St. SPUI will feature longer on and off-ramps at I-35, a wider bridge and single array of traffic signals on top of the bridge to allow large volumes of traffic to negotiate the area. The City of Norman is partnering with ODOT to construct a drainage structure and add artwork and landscaping to the new Lindsey St. bridge to reflect the Cherokee Gothic style of architecture at the University of Oklahoma. The Norman area has seen several major highway projects in the recent years, including reconstruction of the bridges at the South Canadian River and Rock Creek Rd., reconstruction of the Main St. interchange and the first of several projects to widen SH-9 between Norman and Tecumseh, which is currently underway.

MOTOR CARRIERS CAN MITIGATE RISK WITH NEW HAZMAT DRIVER TRAINING PROGRAM To reduce the potential for hazmat incidents on our roadways, and protect the general public and the environment, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires training for all hazmat drivers (49 CFR 172 Subpart H). Motor carriers can use a new training program developed by J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. — Hazmat Transportation: Driver Training — to help them meet the DOT training requirements, avoid penalties for noncompliance, and protect their CSA scores. The hazmat training must cover four distinct areas. In addition to general awareness, DOT requires safety, security awareness, and function-specific training. For trainers, the latter can be the most challenging, because each driver must receive instruction on how to perform his or her unique job functions correctly. J. J. Keller’s Hazmat Transportation: Driver Training covers all four required areas. The training program features a closed-captioned DVD, Trainer Guide, Trainer Tools CD-ROM, Combination Label/ Placard Wall Chart, Load & Segregation Wall Chart, Hazardous Materials Compliance Pocketbook, Driver Awareness Poster, and other materials. The Trainer Tools CD-ROM, a key component of this program, provides a PowerPoint® presentation (which can be customized with company-specific content based on the types of hazmat commonly transported by the motor carrier), quizzes (with answer keys), learning activities, checklists to assist with function-specific training, a sample hazmat policy, clip art, training certificate of completion, and training log. The program also includes a Driver Training Packet with one each: Driver Workbook (which enhances and builds on the information presented in the video), Hazmat Label Chart with regulations, Hazmat Placard Chart with regulations, Hazmat Marking Chart, and Load and Segregation Chart. The packets are available separately and are designed for individual drivers to use during training and then keep as a reference. Randy Skoog, associate editor-transportation at J. J. Keller, stressed the importance of those components: “The goal of training hazmat drivers is to reduce incidents due to human error. To reach that goal, trainers need professional, strategically designed tools — ones that make it easy for them to help drivers understand the full responsibility of their specific job duties. Trainers will find those tools in J. J. Keller’s new training program.” In addition to the DVD format, Hazmat Transportation: Driver Training is available in Pay Per View, which provides 20

72-hour access to the video via the internet, and an Online Course format, which makes self-paced, interactive training available anytime, anywhere with an internet connection. According to Skoog, “By providing format options, we’ve made it practical for all drivers to receive required hazmat training, even those unavailable for classroom instruction.”

SAFETY CULTURE What does it take to be a safe transportation company? In this business, many of us get asked that question multiple times. Unfortunately, it is typically the wrong person asking such as DOT auditors or lawyers. If there is anything to learn from being in safety, it is that there is no “Silver Bullet”. Not many times can you walk into a business, pick a few things that seem out of place, mold them back into shape, and immediately start seeing your profits head back upstream consistently. You may see an immediate impact with any new focus, but it doesn’t seem to sustain. A few items over the years have become common to work on such as Hours of Service violations, speeding, CSA scores, training, and even mechanical defects. These are all control measures no different from any other business. It’s not unlike a business keeping the computers running with an IS department, ensuring vacations are taken to reenergize employees, or having staff meetings to keep people focused on the goal. These are all necessary items, of course, but safety runs a little deeper. When you want your kids to do well in school, do you make sure the teacher has the credentials, use the right books, and have the principal call you when your kids make it to class? I would imagine most people don’t… What you do is much more important; you instill the reasoning. You show them the value of school. You show them how it is going to help them in life. You teach them to care. You teach them why. Drivers are like our kids. They may not want their hand held or hugs every day, but they need to know what matters the most. Asking the driver to get the job done is part of the business, but asking them if they can get the job done – legally, and safely, is aligning their priorities with the company’s. We can all go make a buck somewhere, but without a strong Safety Culture, someone may get hurt. It’s not who’s right, it’s what’s right!

ARE YOU AN ANCHOR OR AN OAR? Chairman Danny Smith has ideas for the future of the OTA and practical solutions that we can all work toward to make the Association a success. “In my life, I break it down to anchors or oars, and if you’re an anchor, I’m gonna cut you loose. If you’re an oar, you’re gonna get in the boat and row with me.” That’s OTA chairman Danny Smith’s view on most things. In the 12 years since Smith has been active with the OTA, he has taken a straightforward approach to moving the Association forward, wherever the road may lead. Always smiling and never a stranger to anyone he encounters, Smith is an asset the OTA has been lucky to have helping them row for so many years. Smith is no stranger to the Chairman position. This is his second term as Chairman, and he has been busier than ever, “The first time I didn’t get it right, so I’ve gotta do it again.” To Smith, membership of the OTA is always an important issue. But it crosses so many oth-
er issues he is passionate about. “Membership development, as it’s always been. Making sure the trucking industry knows what the OTA does for the industry and for individual companies, as well as keeping the folks that we have, because the more members we have, the bigger our voice. And also to help develop our PAC.” Smith has been a vital element in developing and improving the Texas PAC, and he’d like to see the same happen for Oklahoma. “Really it’s an education process. It’s all about education. There are organizations out there that have a strong PAC, and we need to be one of them. We have to be one of them to support the folks that support business in the state. It’s a great state for business and a great state that understands what drives the prosperity of the folks that live in it.” “Oklahoma’s
transportation state,” Smith added. Given the intersection of three major interstates, as well as serving as headquarters for several large carriers, OTA members know that’s true. Budgetary constraints and battles in the legislature can cause worry for the trucking industry and those who depend on the infrastructure of the state for their livelihood. “Making sure that we continue to have the funding needed for infrastructure maintenance and development. In other words, making sure the roads and bridges are being maintained and new infrastructure is being looked at. It takes years from conception and design, to implementation and design for any new road, as well to shoring up the current ones.” Having a strong membership and being able to increase the presence of the PAC can assist in achieving those goals, “We want to make to make sure that our voice – that’s trucking – and we all know that if you’re wearing it, you’re eating it, or you’re using it, a truck usually brought 28

it, and we need to make sure that our voice gets heard as loud as others in this state. And a PAC is one way to get your voice amplified.” A succession plan to ensure the leadership of the OTA is another one of Smith’s goals for this year as chairman. “Dan has been a great leader for us for more than a decade, done a lot of great things for us, and we want to make sure that leadership is carried on after he retires.” Smith plans to set up a group in the Summer dedicated to establishing a leadership plan for the OTA. Ensuring that the OTA will continue to have great leadership for many more years in the future. Smith is active in six states’ associations, Chairman elect in Texas, and on the Board of Directors in Alabama. He is also very active in Mississippie and Lousiana. He is the Vice President of State Government Affairs for UPS, a company he has been with since his college days at Auburn University. From humble beginnings starting off loading shipments, then deliveries,
he eventually spent twenty years in the Finance Group before moving his way into public affairs. In addition to his work with the trucking associations and UPS, Smith serves on the board of The Today Foundation – Texas Leadership Forum, and is a member of other state and national organizations. A family man as well, Smith lives in Southlake, Texas with his wife Terri and two children. He is in constant forward motion, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOP OKLAHOMA’S TECHNOLOGY AND MAINTENANCE COUNCIL’S FALL EVENT The annual Fall Technology Workshop, sponsored by OTA’s Technology Maintenance Council (TMC), was held Nov.5 at Francis Tuttle Technology Center in Oklahoma City. This year’s theme was “Tire and Wheel.” Aimed at technicians, fleet maintenance management personnel, and diesel technology students, the workshop allowed attendees to interact with a number of industry leaders in a variety of different settings. The morning general session featured two keynote presentations: “Commercial Truck Tires and Fleets – What is Important” by Al Cohn, Pressure Systems International Director New Market Development & Engineering Support, and “Wheel Offs Causes and Effects” by Ed Smith,
Webb Wheel National Account Fleet Manager, and Charles Bartley, Alcoa Field Service Manager. A Coffee Break was sponsored by Weldon Parts. Thirteen vendors, Alcoa, Alligator North America/Myers Tire Supply, Goodyear, Hunter Engineering, Michelin, PSI, SAF Holland, Southern Tire Mart, Stemco, Truck-Lite, TSE Brakes, T&W Tire, and Webb Wheel, were available during a twohour walk-around lunch/vendor fair, sponsored by Snap-on, to discuss their products and offer solutions to tire and wheel maintenance issues. A Pinewood Big Rig Challenge, sponsored by Consolidated MetCo, provided excitement as entries vied for “Best Appearing” and “Fastest Truck” honors. The following prizes
were awarded: “Best Appearing” – Matt VanZanten (CRST) 1st, Tulsa Technology Center (The Gambler) 2nd, and Bonne Karim (U of O) 3rd. “Fastest Truck” honors went to Bonne Karim (USPS) 1st, Bonne Karim (U of O) 2nd, and Tulsa Technology Center (The Gambler) 3rd. A large number of door prizes, donated by vendors and workshop sponsors, were also given away. Attendees had the opportunity to increase their knowledge and get hands-on experience in smaller groups by selecting three afternoon training sessions from six available choices: “Common Out of Service Tires (Michelin), “Fleet Maintenance & Tire Engineering” (Goodyear), “Automatic Tire Inflation System Maintenance” (PSI), “Alignment/
