OPP TRAFFIC SAFETY RESULTS 2010
Almost four years into the implementation of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) international-award-winning Provincial Traffic Safety Program (PTSP), the OPP continues to build on the successes of the program to promote traffic safety on OPP patrolled highways and roadways. Introduced in March of 2007, the PTSP is a proactive, intelligence-led approach to traffic safety that, initially, targeted “the big three” causes of injury and death in jurisdictions patrolled by the OPP; impaired driving, aggressive driving and failure to use occupant restraints. While the number of road fatalities was higher in 2010 (330) than in 2009, (310), there remains an overall 28 per
cent reduction in fatalities from the 2005-2007 three-year period prior to
implementation of the PTSP. The program has also resulted in an overall reduction in year-over-year collisions and the personal injuries that result from these crashes. In 2008, the OPP investigated 74,196 collisions
in which there were 16,767 persons injured. In 2009, collisions were reduced to 69,560 with 14,779 personal injuries collisions. In 2010, there was a further reduction in collisions to 69,218 in which 14,737 persons were injured. According to research conducted by the Canadian Automobile Association, distracting driving has become the number one road safety concern among Canadians. While texting and driving has been identified as a key problem, other driving behaviours that distract drivers are also a concern. The OPP, in its unwavering commitment to traffic safety will be targeting this issue by adopting distracted driving as its fourth major pillar of the Provincial Traffic Safety Program to ensure that
we can maintain our commitment to keeping Ontario roadways amongst the safest in North America.
The unprecedented reductions we are seeing in the number of deaths, personal injury and vehicle collisions across the province have earned us international recognition as a world leader in traffic safety and we will continue to improve on our ability to save lives on our roads through enhancements to our PTSP.

(NC)—Many Canadians have come to believe that the best way to warm up a cold vehicle is to let it run. After all, it seems logical to us northern brave hearts that if everything outside the vehicle is frozen solid, everything inside the car will be petrified as well. The longer we let the car run, the faster it will warm up, right? Not so. Contrary to popular belief, excessive idling is not the best way to warm up your vehicle in cold weather; driving it is. Consider these facts recently presented by Natural Resources Canada in its new publication Lean and Clean: Best Practices for Fuel-Efficient Driving: • Some drivers let their vehicle run for six to eight minutes or more to warm up the inside of the vehicle. Letting a vehicle warm up for that long
only warms the engine. It does nothing for the wheel bearings, steering, suspension, transmission and tires. These parts can only be warmed up by driving the vehicle, which in turn, allows the ventilation system to heat the inside of the vehicle; • By using a block heater for just a couple of hours on a timer, your vehicle will reach its optimal operating temperature faster; • The faster your vehicle reaches that temperature, the more efficiently it will run; • The average vehicle with a three-litre engine wastes 300 millilitres – more than one cup – of fuel for every 10 minutes of idling; You can find more helpful tips for fuel-efficient driving on the NRCan website at www.vehicles.nrcan.gc.ca.

Vehicle buying tip
Step away from the gas guzzler
(NC) —When it comes to buying a new vehicle, there is a big difference between what you need and what you want. Do you really need an oversized pick-up truck for driving in the city or a seven-person passenger van for taking the dogs to the lake? Or would a small, fuel-efficient two-door vehicle get you where you want to go? You can save hundreds of dollars every year in fuel costs by choosing to buy a more fuel-efficient vehicle, maintaining it as specified in the owner’s manual and adopting fuel-efficient driving habits. One quarter of green-
house gas emissions in Canada come from transportation, half of which are generated by light-duty vehicles. For example, for every litre of gasoline used, a vehicle produces about 2.3 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). As a result of the fuel combustion process, the average car produces about three times its own weight in CO2 every year. Choose a vehicle that fits your everyday needs in terms of size and power. Put some serious thought into your space and cargo needs. Passenger cars with smaller engines tend to deliver better fuel economy than those with larger engines. Keep in mind horsepower levels have also doubled over the past two decades and the power available in subcompact cars today exceeds that of many midsize sedans of 20 to 30 years ago. Natural Resources Canada rates the fuel efficiency of all new vehicles in Canada every year. You can check out their scorecard at www.vehicles. nrcan.gc.ca and have fun shopping.

Are you a speed demon or devil-may-care driver? Your answer could be costing you money E
The Biweekly Newspaper Published By Award Winning
(NC)—How many of us have ripped through a red light, soared past the slow poke in front of us or hummed along the highway not really concentrating on the conditions around us? All of us have driven this way at one time or another. These three driving styles – known as aggressive, rushed or average - can be dangerous, expensive and harmful to the environment. Did you know, though, that there are driving behaviours that could keep you safe, save you money and help the environment? Natural Resources Canada defines this type of driver as one who is focused on fuel efficiency at all times. Thinking about road safety and saving fuel and money, fuel-efficient drivers are known to accelerate gently, maintain a steady speed, anticipate upcoming traffic, coast to a stop with their foot off the gas (like driving for free) and avoid high speeds. A study in Europe revealed that calm drivers use significantly less fuel than aggressive drivers who, the study found, consume 39 per cent more fuel in city traffic than calm drivers and only achieve a four per

cent savings in time. Also, students who took fuelefficient driving lessons were shown to save about 25 per cent in fuel.

cades and the power available in today’s subcompact cars exceeds that of many midsize sedans of the mid1980s; • Choose a manual instead of an automatic transmission – Look for the transmission option that minimizes fuel consumption. Generally speaking, manuals will use less fuel, saving up to 100 litres a year; • Two-wheel drive vs. four-wheel drive – The added weight and drive train losses you get with fourwheel and ‘all-wheel’ drive systems increase fuel consumption. Although all-wheel drive can offer better traction when accelerating under slippery conditions, it doesn’t assist in turning or braking; there is no substitute for safe driving habits; • Think about your extras – Accessories and power features can be a big drag on an engine, increasing fuel consumption. How much do you really need a sunroof or roof rack? Are they worth the increased fuel consumption and emissions? Do your homework and watch your savings add up and your emissions go down.

(NC)—Just as weight loss experts recommend keeping track of everything you eat in order to lose weight, driving experts recommend tracking your fuel consumption to cut costs and reduce harmful emissions. One way of monitoring your fuel consumption is to use a fuel consumption display. Now standard in many vehicles, these displays give you immediate and average fuel consumption readings. Some systems let you know when you are accelerating too hard or are driving too aggressively. Many drivers report consuming 15 per cent less fuel by acting on the feedback the systems provide.

Metrolinx saves municipalities money on accessible public transit vehicles
Metrolinx has purchased 27 new accessible eightmetre buses through joint procurement partnerships between 11 municipalities, the first collaboration of its kind for specialized vehicles in Ontario. Municipalities and their non-profit specialized transit service providers who participated in the joint bus order are saving approximately $400,000 on the order that is valued at $3.5 million. “Accessible transit can be an important lifeline for people with disabilities and seniors to access jobs, community, friends and family,” said Ajax-Pickering MPP Joe Dickson. “Helping Ontario communities purchase accessible buses and improve transit is part
of the McGuinty government’s Open Ontario plan.” The 11 participating municipalities and nonprofit organizations are Durham Region, Sarnia, North Bay, Welland, Kenora, HAGI (Thunder Bay), Cornwall, Community Care North Hastings (Bancroft), Oakville, St. Thomas and York Region. “By working together, we were able to generate a significant cost savings with a lower unit price on the new buses and reduced administrative costs for all parties associated with the joint procurement process,” said Metrolinx President and CEO Bruce McCuaig. “We are helping municipalities get more out of their investment and continuing to make progress
on improving public transit services.” These high-floor and low-floor buses are accessible and carry up to six passengers with personal mobility devices at a time. The buses will use clean diesel and meet 2010 emissions standards. Metrolinx is a Crown agency of the Province of Ontario. For more information, visit our website www.metrolinx.com
Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (PBA) have announced the installation of a second NEXUS lane within the Peace Bridge CBSA plaza. This new NEXUS lane will provide additional expedited processing opportunities during busy commuter times and other peak travel events at the crossing. “Locating another NEXUS lane at the Peace Bridge is a welcome enhancement and certainly improves our ability to facilitate frequent travel between Canada and the United States,” said Authority Chairman Ken Schoetz. “As the bridge is the busiest NEXUS corridor in the region, with nearly 300,000 expedited crossings per year, this move is a tangible
demonstration of CBSA’s commitment to helping us make the border work better.” The equipment in the additional NEXUS lane was installed in inspection lane number two beside the existing NEXUS lane, and will be made available for high-volume traffic periods such as regional sporting events, commuter periods, and traffic during Lake Erie summer cottage season. The original dedicated NEXUS lane remains open during regular hours (seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. / 10 p.m. for Buffalo Sabres home games). The NEXUS program is a bi-national program jointly administered by the CBSA and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (U.S. CBP) for low-risk,
pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States. The program provides members with access to expedited processing at designated ports of entry in the air and marine modes as well at land border crossings, through dedicated processing lanes. For more information on the NEXUS program, visit www.nexus.gc.ca or www.peacebridge.com/NEXUS. The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority, a bi-national bridge authority, has owned and operated the Peace Bridge since 1933. The bridge, which was opened to traffic in 1927, spans the Niagara River between Fort Erie, Ontario, and Buffalo, New York, and is a key international border crossing.

A vehicle’s polluting past
(NC)—The life-cycle of a vehicle is long, complex, and inevitably involves the release of harmful smog-forming emissions into the atmosphere. The life of a vehicle on the road and the environmental impact it can have at the end of its life is especially pronounced when the vehicle is model year 1995 or older. On the road Vehicles of model-year 1995 or older lack the latest technology for reducing airpolluting emissions. In fact, a 1995 or older vehicle produces up to 19 times more smog forming emissions than 2004 or newer vehicles. After life If a car is not properly retired at the end of its life, it can have a negative impact on the environment. Failure to remove fluids, such as gas, oil and coolants, could result in the contamination of our air, water and soil. Additionally, when recyclers reuse components of the vehicles that are safe to reclaim and do not contribute to the vehicle’s emissions, they reduce the need to manufacture new parts. Therefore, it is important for owners to ensure their vehicles are properly disposed of in the end. Until March 31, 2011, Ontarians who own 1995 model year and older vehicles can do just that and get rewarded for it by participating in Retire Your Ride, Canada’s national vehicle recycling program. The program has its own recycling Code of Practice that ensures the following steps are followed: • Draining of Fluids: On average, between 20 and 40 litres of fluid are removed from a vehicle and disposed of responsibly. • Part Removal: The vehicle is dismantled, reusable parts (except those related to emissions) are inspected, tested and prepared for resale. • Recycling and Recovery of Material – The empty body of the vehicle is crushed and shredded. Ferrous materials (such as iron) and nonferrous materials (such as aluminum) are then separated and reused to make new vehicles and other products. To date, the program has responsibly recycled more than 90,000 vehicles from Canada’s roads, reducing smog forming emissions by over 4,800 tonnes. More information is available online at retireyourride. ca.
HARPER GOVERNMENT MOVES FORWARD WITH REGULATIONS FOR RENEWABLE FUEL CONTENT IN DIESEL FUEL AND HEATING OIL
The Harper Government has announced that it is moving forward with the requirement for an average 2 per cent renewable content in diesel fuel and heating oil. “When we announced our Renewable Fuels Strategy, we were clear that the 2 per cent requirement would be implemented subject to technical feasibility,” said the Honourable Peter Kent, Minister of the Environment. “After positive results, we are moving forward with this requirement which will result in further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately in cleaner air for all Canadians.’’ “We are meeting the commitments we have made to farmers, rural communities and industry to regulate the use of renewable fuels,” said the Honourable Lebel, Minister of State (Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec). “The new renewable fuel content in biodiesel and heating oil will give our farmers another market for their crops and demonstrates how agriculture can contribute to reducing Canada’s environmental footprint.” Government’s Renewable Fuels Regulations were published on September 1, 2010. The regulations already require an average of 5 per cent renewable content in gasoline. The regulations also contained the provisions to require an average of 2 per cent
renewable content in diesel fuel and heating oil. When fully implemented, the Strategy’s two regulatory requirements combined with provincial regulations will ensure a total volume of renewable fuel that will reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by up to four megatonnes—about the equivalent of taking one million vehicles off the road. The proposed regulatory amendment will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I in the coming weeks for a 60-day public comment period. The Government of Canada is proposing a coming into force date of July 1, 2011. The Harper Government worked closely with industry partners to support several projects to demonstrate how renewable diesel fuel would perform under the range of Canadian conditions. The report concluded that an average of 2 per cent renewable content is technically feasible. Reducing emissions in the transportation sector is a key component in the Government’s plan to achieve Canada’s target of reducing total greenhouse gas emissions by 17 per cent from 2005 levels by 2020. In addition to the Renewable Fuels Regulations, the Government has also finalized regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from passenger vehicles and is working to do the same for heavy-duty vehicles.

design.” Khosla Ventures’ Vinod Khosla, EcoMotors primary investor along with Bill Gates, sees the Navistar-EcoMotors alliance as a reflection of the disruptive nature of the opoc technology. EcoMotors’ patented engine design creates a ground-breaking internal combustion engine family architecture that will operate on a number of different fuels, including gasoline, diesel, natural gas and ethanol. The opoc’s new opposed piston-opposed cylinder direct gas exchange operation provides the well known emissions benefits of 4-cycle engines, the simplicity benefits of 2-cycle engines, the power density of the less well known opposed piston engine, and the extraordinary developments in electronics and combustion technology all tied together in a new and proprietary engine architecture. The opoc engine comprises two opposing cylinders per module, with a crankshaft between them— each cylinder has two pistons moving in opposite directions. This innovative design configuration eliminates the cylinder-head and valve-train components of conventional engines, offering an efficient, compact and simple core engine structure. The result is an engine family that is lighter, more efficient and economical, with lower exhaust emissions. EcoMotors’ opoc engine has a number of distinct advantages over traditional internal combustion engines. The opoc engine has very high power density of nearly one horsepower per pound resulting in an unprecedented lightweight and compact engine. The opoc engine is perfectly balanced enabling stackable power modules. This unique modular displacement capability is one of the long standing, but elusive goals of engine engineers’ quest for high efficiency. In addition, it also results in much less NVH than a conventional engine of comparable power. It’s elegantly simple design allows for low cost, efficient manufacturing and increased operating durability: • 50 percent fewer parts than a conventional engine • Straight forward assembly • No cylinder heads or valve-train • Uses conventional components, materials and processes

Volvo Trucks Safety Award Continues in 2011
Again this year, two fleets in North America will be recognized for their commitment to safety through the 2011 Volvo Trucks Safety Award. The honorees will each receive $25,000 to be used in their safety-related activities. 2011 marks the third consecutive year that Volvo Trucks will highlight the safety efforts of two outstanding fleets. Michelin again joins Volvo in sponsoring the Volvo Trucks Safety Award, focusing on the importance of highway safety for the trucking industry and all motorists. “Safety has long been a Volvo core value, and a central concern of the entire trucking industry,” said Ron Huibers, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Volvo Trucks in North America. “The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is a way to recognize the industry’s best for their excellent work and dedication to safety.” “Highway safety starts long before trucks take to the road,” Huibers said. “Our vehicles feature active safety technologies, like Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology and Volvo Enhanced Cruise, that make the highways safer for all of us. Volvo Trucks and Michelin view this award as an opportunity to support fleets in furthering their own commitments to safety.” The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is open to all U.S. and Canadian fleets operating at least five Class 8 units. Fleets must have at least one Volvo tractor in operation to be eligible for the award. Entrants will be ranked by their accident frequency rates. Participating fleets will also be judged on their accident prevention activities. The deadline for entry is June 30, 2011. The winners of the award will be announced during the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition in Oct. 2011. The two grand prizes will be awarded to the fleets with the best records in two divisions based on annual vehicle miles traveled: less than 20 million miles and more than 20 million miles. Complete rules and entry forms are at http:// www.volvotruckssafetyaward. com The winners of the 2010 Volvo Trucks Safety Award were MacKinnon Transport of Guelph, Ontario, and Upper Lakes Foods, Cloquet, Minnesota.

Grote Introduces CSA Roadside Lighting Repair Kit Grote Industries has announced the introduction of the industry’s first advanced, compact, portable Roadside Lighting Repair Kit. The company said the kit was a logical response to the problem of unpredictable lighting and wiring failures that occur in the field. The kit contains 23 of the most practical, commonly used, mission-critical lighting components found in today’s commercial vehicles. The kit has everything a driver needs to make a first-class field repair and make it back to the hub or to the nearest service center– –without a roadside service call, without an error and without an incident. The authorities track approximately 220 CSA violations related to vehicle maintenance. Violations that wreak the most havoc within the CSA scoring system include: driving out of service (level of severity 10), tire defects (level of severity 8), suspension defects (level of se-
verity 7), defective lights (level of severity 6), steering defects (level of severity 6) and brake defects (level of severity 4). Violations leading to an out-of-service order result in a doubling of the point penalty. Vehicle maintenance violations (such as those for lighting defects) will affect a driver’s score for 36 months and a fleet’s score for 24 months. The kit comes complete with 23 of the industry’s most commonly used lighting-related parts: 12 lamps, four styles of pigtails, three unique grommets, two unique brackets, conspicuity tape and a selection of 14-gauge butt connectors. The kit also includes a selection of zip tie fasteners to help stabilize any field repair.

11 March 02 - 15, 2011 TransCore’s Canadian Freight Index Leads 2011 with Record Results TransCore’s Canadian Freight Index recorded the highest load volumes ever posted in the month of January; volumes exceeded the previous record set during the upsurge in 2008 by 4 percent. January postings were up 30 percent over January 2010, while month over month declined by just over a percentage point from the previous month’s record load volumes in December 2010. With loads reaching a peak in January, equipment postings reflected the exact opposite results. Equipment postings descended to the lowest levels for the month in over five years. TransCore’s Loadlink freight matching database constitutes the largest Canadian network of carriers, owner operators, freight brokers and intermediaries and has been available to Canadian subscribers since its inception in 1990. Over 13 million full loads, LTL (less than truck load) shipments and trucks are posted to the Loadlink network annually. As a result of this high volume, TransCore’s Canadian Freight Index is representative of the ups and downs in spot market freight movement and provides a historical account of the domestic and cross border spot market freight movement. The Loadlink network provides Canadian based companies with: • The largest online database of available loads and trucks • Unlimited access to the network and integrated services • Guaranteed payment

Low rolling resistance tires can improve your gas mileage
HEAVY TOWING & RECOVERY
Fuel savings tip
Service Across Ontario
(NC) —If you want to get the most mileage out of a tank of gas, consider investing in low rolling resistance tires. Rolling resistance, is a measure of the force that it takes to move your tires forward on the road. As you travel along, the weight of your vehicle “deforms” your tire tread where the rubber meets the road. The resulting deformity generates heat between the tire and the road, which is then wasted in the form of heat as the tire rotates. The only way for your engine to make up for the lost energy is through consuming fuel. The heavier your vehicle, the more energy it burns to compensate. Who knew? If new tires are on the horizon, consider low rolling resistance tires; some tire manufacturers are now boasting a 20 per cent reduction in rolling resistance through high-efficiency tires that reduce fuel consumption by about 4%. The Rubber Association of Canada and Natural Resources Canada have teamed up to make this information available to Canadians through their web-
sites (www.betiresmart.ca and www.vehicles.nrcan. gc.ca). The websites contain a lot of helpful tips and tricks to help consumers save money on fuel and reduce harmful emissions, including how to buy and maintain more eco-friendly tires.
DTNA Celebrates Production of 1000th Hybrid Electric Vehicle Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has marked the production of its 1,000th hybrid electric vehicle with a celebration at its Mt. Holly, NC plant. The Freightliner Business Class M2 106 Hybrid features the same benefits of the Freightliner Business Class M2, such as outstanding visibility and maneuverability, with the added efficiency and environmentfriendly features of hybrid power. The Business Class M2 106 Hybrid also can be easily configured for a wide variety of bodies for different applications, such as beverage, dump, government, landscape, towing, utility vehicles, and emergency. In addition to the Business Class M2 106 Hybrid, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC), a subsidiary of DTNA, leads the way
for alternative power in its markets. For the walk-in van industry, FCCC manufactures hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) chassis, hydraulic hybrid vehicle (HHV) chassis and an allelectric chassis. FCCC also manufactures HEV chassis for the commercial bus market segments. In 2009, Thomas Built Buses, another DTNA subsidiary, launched is first HEV, the Saf-T-Liner C2e solution, also supported by FCCC’s hybridelectric chassis. All of DTNA’s hybrid products are equipped with EPA 2010-compliant engines utilizing selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology and the Eaton Hybrid Electric Drivetrain System, a parallel hybrid system that enables the truck to operate using the diesel engine alone, or in combination with the hybrid
electric motor. The hybrid-electric motor provides power to launch and accelerate the truck, improving fuel economy and reducing emissions in stop-and-go operations, and the electric power comes from regenerative braking while the vehicle is slowing down. Further, DTNA hybrid’s can be equipped with electronic PTO and/or 110V power generation capabilities to power hydraulics, lights, tools, or other equipment for job site or refrigerated cargo applications. Last spring, DTNA further demonstrated its leadership in hybrid technologies with the announcement of the opening of its Local Hybrid Application Center in Portland, Ore.

reater structural stability and enhanced product performance are the hallmarks of Continental Tire the Americas, LLC’s latest waste haul truck tire, the HSU2+, the company announced last month. The HSU2+ is the next generation of Continental’s heavy truck tire designed for waste hauling and other severe service applications. While the tire incorporates the previous HSU2’s wide tread and shoulder ribs for improved wear, a robust cut- and chip-resistant tread compound and unique tread groove designs to reduce stone retention, a new feature is Continental’s premier “Stable” bead construction, said Roger Stansbie, director of truck tire engineering for the Americas. “The ‘Stable’ bead construction is a new, technologically advanced bead design that incorporates the best that Continental’s engineers have to offer for severe service, construction and other off-road applications,” Stansbie explained. “With the improvements we have made to the bead design, waste haulers and other tough customers will see even longer casing lifetimes and better structural durability with the HSU2+.” The Continental exclusive “Stable” bead features an 18 percent increase in chafer cord density, an increase in the amount of tear-resistant wrap at the chafer and ply edges of the steel cord, an optimized chafer angle for improved stiffness across the body ply of the tire and an extruded sidewall, turn-up cover and rim strip. “For heavy, front axle load applications, the ‘Stable’ bead ensures maximum performance and greater retreadability,” Stansbie said. Continental’s HSU2+ sports an extra-deep 26/32nds of tread depth, as well as 276 millimeters of tread width for greater stability. It is available now in size 315/80R22.5, load range L from authorized Continental truck tire dealers.
