Air Disc Brakes Steer Axle

Mack Adds Air Disc Brakes to Vocational Truck Lineup Work truck customers looking for superior stopping performance in harsh conditions and duty cycles can now order Meritor EX+ Air Disc Brakes for their MACK Granite, TerraPro and Titan by Mack models. Mack introduced the air disc brakes offering across its vocational lineup recently at the 2014 World of Concrete exhibition.

M

ack’s air disc brakes are built to our standards and tuned specifically for the needs of vocational customers to help boost uptime and lower overall lifecycle costs,” said Stu Russoli, Mack vocational marketing product manager. “Vehicle operators and workers on the job site can also enjoy the added safety benefits of the air disc brakes’ exceptional stopping performance.” More than 2.2 million miles of real-world service in North America has shown that the air disc brakes deliver superior stopping performance and require less maintenance than conventional S-cam designs. Mack’s air disc brakes utilize a flat rotor concept

to prevent heat distortion in heavy-duty service, rather than “hat-shaped” rotors, which are prone to distortion and shorter life. The brake pads are engineered by Mack to deliver top performance in all situations and minimize brake fade during extreme braking cycles and frequent use. “In line with our philosophy of application excellence, our air disc brakes are optimized to give customers a durable option for excellent performance in any type of work environment,” said John Walsh, Mack vice president of marketing. Mack began offering air disc brakes in 2008 on its MACK Pinnacle Axle Forward and Axle Back models. RT

ENFORCEMENT

MTO to Utilize Radar to Increase Speed Limiter Enforcement This spring the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will begin equipping its patrol vehicles with radar devices to help MTO officers’ step-up enforcement of the province’s speed limiter requirement.

T

he pilot is intended to assist officers in the enforcement of Sec. 68.1 of the Highway Traffic Act, which requires most large commercial motor vehicles to have a functioning speed limiting system set at 105 km/h. MTO informs the OTA that it’s in the process of purchasing the radar units as part of a pilot program. Multiple teams of officers are expected to begin training on the devices this April. Each region will be issued a radar unit and officers will primarily focus their enforcement on major highways with speed limits of 100 km/h. Once MTO vehicles are equipped with radar, observing officers will be able to clock commercial motor vehicles and will be able to charge any driver traveling at 115 km/h or greater for violating the province’s speed limiter law. The radar reading will be used

as evidence that the speed limiter is not functioning under the “deeming provision” outlined in the regulations. Officers will not lay a tampering charge strictly based on the radar reading. Radar is meant to enhance the current speed limiter enforcement program so officers will also continue to use ECM readers to determine whether or not the speed limiter is activated. RT

SAFETY RECOGNITION

Volvo Trucks to Recognize Safest North American Fleets with Annual Safety Award

S

Volvo Trucks will once again recognize North America’s safest fleets with the Volvo Trucks Safety Award. Two fleets with the safest driving records and top safety programs will receive the annual award and $25,000 to be used toward their safety-related activities.

afety is a top issue each year for Volvo Trucks and the entire industry,” said Göran Nyberg, president, Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing. “It’s no coincidence that Volvo trucks are known for their exceptional safety features – it’s by design. The Volvo cab, safety cage and other passive safety features are in place to protect drivers, and our portfolio of integrated active safety technologies, like Volvo Enhanced Cruise and standard Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology, benefit all motorists. Safe trucking operations are also by design, so we’re pleased to again recognize the best performers.” Volvo Trucks will again be joined by Michelin America Truck Tires in sponsoring the annual award. Now in its sixth year, the Volvo Trucks Safety Award highlights the importance of highway safety for the trucking industry and the motoring public. Michelin has been a

supporting sponsor of the award since 2010. 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 July 31, 2014. The award winners will be announced during the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition in October 2014. 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 available at www.volvotrucks.us.com/ safetyaward. RT

FLEETRECOGNITION

Top Fleet Employers program applications are open until Feb. 28 Top Fleet Employers – a new program to recognize fleets with the best workplaces in Canada’s trucking industry – is now accepting applications at www.truckingHR.com. And the Feb. 28 deadline is approaching fast.

T

here is just one month to go, and we want to ensure fleets of every size take the opportunity to apply,” says Angela Splinter, Chief Executive Officer of Trucking HR Canada. “We are certainly excited about

the response so far. Many completed applications have already been submitted.” The program’s vigorous selection criteria reflects Canadian human resources issues, trends and working environments, and have been validated by a panel of trucking industry experts and a Certified Human Resource Professional (CHRP). They also echo Trucking HR Canada’s standards of excellence, and consider every position in a fleet. For-hire fleets can identify the

information needed for an application by clicking here. Private fleets can identify the information needed for an application by clicking here. The criteria applied to for-hire fleets is firmly rooted in the core values of Canadian Trucking Alliance’s recent Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Driver Shortage, while those applied to private fleets will reflect environments and requirements unique to their operations.

GUESTCOLUMN

Building your trucking business! You’ve started a small trucking business and are making a good living. Over time, opportunities have presented themselves and you have grown your business and added trucks and brought in drivers to work for you. The dream of owning your own business is now a reality. Now, more than ever - you need a plan if you want to continue to successfully grow.

C

anada has been an immigrant’s dream welcoming waves of Irish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, and Russians over the years, and now the East Indian community who are playing a growing role in the trucking sector. Many successful trucking companies here in Canada are celebrating decades and even 100 year anniversaries of being in the trucking business. They all started with one truck at some point. Business growth sounds great, but you need a formal plan to ensure profit and to protect the assets and wealth you’ve accumulated. Far too often we see one truck owner grasp at any and all opportunities and then get caught up in a trend of rapid fleet growth and then ultimately fail. Nothing sets off louder bells or raises red flags to a banker or an insurance company than

12

rapid growth. Rule #1 – Fleet growth must be controlled. You need to manage it, and to do this you will need to bring on new and competent staff and employ appropriate technology. Never allow growth to outpace your management’ capability. Once a small fleet grows past 4 trucks the owner can no longer afford to be driving on a full time basis. The owner needs to start actively managing the day to day business focusing on cost control, driver management, and developing vendor relations. Don’t make the mistake of hiring family, unless he or she has the required skill set. You need to hire motivated, competent staff and pay them well. They will take care of your customers and help you build business credibility. The one key focus is to manage your driver group and equipment assets. Waiting or delaying on this critical area usually results in a trucking business spinning out of control. All the large professionally run fleets operating today employ fleet management software, technology, professional operations, dispatch, safety, and financial personnel, and some form of fleet telematics. A successful fleet owner must be looking at the big picture, and will need to engage and become involved in industry associations. Staying current on industry matters and pending regulations can be accomplished by simply reading trade magazines and with involvement in associations such as the OTA. Rule #2 – Deal direct with shippers and work to improve business margins. The small fleet owner needs to focus his or her efforts on developing fleet business

directly with shippers. Cutting out the middle man will improve your margins and allow the owner to better control their business destiny. Relying solely on freight through load brokers and internet load boards means you live with low end margins, as the middleman is picking up the gravy while you do all the work and undertake all the risk and costs associated with the movement of freight. Start networking! Look at joining local shipper and industry organizations where you will have the opportunity to meet the shipper community and other industry players. Rule #3 - Engage the services of an accountant or a business consultant early in your business start up. Rule #4 – Avoid the trap of rapid growth. Rapid growth often leads to cutting corners due to “freight pressure”. Small fleets with parked units and short of drivers often cave in to this freight pressure. They begin by shortcutting the recruiting and screening process, and simply put a “warm body” in the truck versus a properly screened professional. Even worse - some will put a driver behind the wheel of their truck that has not been approved by their insurance company. For small fleets on a scheduled policy this is a breach of policy terms and will lead to policy cancellation or denial of claims. The hiring of an effective safety manager is key. It is a “must hire” position. They must have the owner’s blessing for full control where safety is concerned to be effective. Safety is a cost to operating your business, but an effective safety program will deliver bottom line profits through savings in insurance, collision reduction, fuel efficiency, improved maintenance costs,


roadtoday www.roadtoday.com

and more importantly a great CVOR / US CSA Score which best in class shippers look at when hiring their carrier. Rule #5 – Protect your fleet’s loss history. A fleet’s loss history is earned. The insurance industry measures and monitors a fleet’s claim and collision performance and poor performers are quickly identified. A successful carrier will always maintain close control as this is the carrier’s reputation and its’ report card to the insurance industry. Insurance companies understand that increasing accident frequency leads to increased severity and large dollar loss collisions. The home for on-going poor performers is “facility insurance”. $30,000 to $50,000 quotes for a single truck for insurance coverage is not unusual through facility insurance. Never play the game where your drivers are not your drivers. An employee is an employee and trying to shift exposure or costs by having drivers incorporate themselves and operate as a driver service is a red flag and could have a financially dangerous outcome. Managing your top three costs (driver wages, fuel, and fleet insurance) must be your priority. Selecting a broker who specializes in trucking insurance is a good first step. Having the proper coverage’ in place will minimize exposure and assist with your long term growth and business plan. Do not allow any unapproved drivers to operate your equipment. Do not allow the double brokering of customer

loads! Keys to Success n Develop your freight sales direct with shippers n Join and become involved with industry organizations n Read and stay current by reading industry trade magazines n Manage and be selective of every driver you bring into your organization – his or her performance will be a direct reflection of you and your company n Build and add infrastructure and competent staff as you grow - not after you’ve grown too fast and are spinning out of control n Select an insurance broker and company that will work closely with you, bringing expertise and resources to assist you in business growth Recommended Resources: n ATBS Canada - offers a booklet titled “A Business Manual for Owner Operators” – this is a must read booklet for every small fleet operator n Ontario Trucking Association – membership brings value, networking opportunities and access to education n Trade magazines n Truck Training Organizations – can provide a wealth of information, resources, and access to training as you grow your business – refer to members of TTSAO – Truck Training School Association of Ontario RT

How to Prepare for a Facility Audit

T

he facility audit is one of many methods that enable jurisdictions to monitor a commercial vehicle operator’s compliance with requirements for record keeping, driver control and vehicle maintenance, to better achieve public road safety. A facility audit is conducted for these reasons: n When on-road events change an operator’s overall violation rate, taking it above a safety threshold of 50, the CVOR system will recommend a facility audit. This recommendation is verified by the Ministry after a review of the CVOR record. n If an operator has previously failed a facility audit within the past five years and has not passed an audit since then, a re-audit may be done. (This may take the form of a partial audit, where only the elements that previously failed the scoring are re-examined.) n To verify that an operator is fulfilling commitments that were made to the Deputy Registrar (such as Terms and Conditions or action plans), either in an interview or in writing to the Deputy Registrar. Compliance verifications can only be requested and approved by the Deputy Registrar. n Operators may voluntarily

request audits in order to improve their carrier safety rating. n To review complaints made by any provincial jurisdiction, US transportation authority, or the public about the unsafe performance of an operator’s driver, vehicle or both. Ontario’s facility audit takes a ‘risk based’ approach to evaluate the elements of an operator’s safety programs and practices. The Auditor examines the potential for risk in elements that are known to contribute to commercial vehicle collisions. The facility audit focuses on how effectively the operator monitors and manages these risks. The operator’s safety programs and practices are reviewed against federal standards known as the National Safety Code, as well as safety requirements legislated by the province of Ontario. To maintain transparency in the audit process, the facility audit software used by the Auditor is programmed to randomly select drivers. To meet the sample requirements of the Vehicle Profile, the auditor will first select vehicles from the operator’s CVOR record and select “events” to satisfy the sample size requirements. Vehicles will be randomly selected only when a search of the operator’s CVOR record fails to meet the sample requirements.

CSA Impacts on Drivers and Law Enforcement Explored in New ATRI Research The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, has released Compliance, Safety Accountability: Assessing the New Safety Measurement System and Its Implications – 2013 Update. This is the first in a new series of ATRI white papers covering a multitude of research topics critical to the trucking industry.

T

his white paper expands on ATRI’s previous CSA impacts research among commercial drivers and enforcement personnel. Approximately 7,800 driver responses were analyzed over a three-year period examining perceptions, attitudes and knowledge of CSA. In addition, ATRI partnered with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance to obtain a baseline level of enforcement personnel knowledge of CSA. On average, drivers responded to the CSA knowledge test with 42.4 percent accuracy, suggesting that after three years of implementation drivers do not have a clear understanding of CSA. However, on a more

positive note carrier-provided CSA training has increased steadily since 2011. Furthermore, driver job security concerns due to CSA have decreased by almost 10 percent over the threeyear period. Among enforcement personnel, respondents performed with 66.5 percent accuracy on the CSA knowledge test. ATRI is expanding on this study’s findings by investigating driver CSA training content and frequency and the relationship these variables have to CSA knowledge. In addition, the enforcement personnel results provide a platform for further evaluation of enforcement personnel CSA knowledge and the potential impacts this may have on enforcement activities. RT

SC is an association of driver trainers, directors of safety, and other professionals working in cooperation with the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) to promote safety within the Ontario transport industry and a uniform system of safety requirements for drivers. According to a letter from the FSC, “the lack of a training standard has been a long-standing frustration of many of our members. Moreover, those of us in the industry are often questioned as to why that is the case. Obviously, there is no good answer.” The FSC says it is “hopeful that by lending our voice to those of OTA, the

insurance companies and the Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO), this issue can be advanced.” The Toronto chapter will be recommending that the other 10 FSC chapters in the province take a similar position. RT

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions Launches New R244 Rib-Type All-Position Steer Radial Tire

Tire designed for severe service and on-highway applications Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has announced the launch of the Bridgestone R244 AllPosition Steer Radial Tire.

T

he new tire meets the demands of dump trucks and concrete mixer truck fleets which spend a higher percentage of their miles in on-highway use. Designed with a wide base ribbed steer pattern, the tire performs well both on- and off-highway without sacrificing the traction needed on rougher roads.

Additional features of the Bridgestone R244 include: n Rib-type pattern to help deliver a smoother ride; wide base design allows vehicle to haul more n Special tread compounds to provide resistance to irregular wear, extending life and reducing cost per mile n Sidewall protector ribs to protect the casing from curbing damage, plus cuts and abrasions. If one side wears away, simply flip the tire over for continued protection. Bridgestone R244 comes in three sizes in the U.S. and Canada. The 425/65R22.5 is available now. The 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 will be available later this year. RT

(L to R) - Judy Harwood, Reeve, Rural Municipality of Corman Park, Don Goodwill, President, Manitoulin Transport, Corey Tochor, MLA Saskatoon Eastview

Manitoulin Transport has opened a new terminal in the Rural Municipality of Corman Park, Saskatchewan. The new facility will enable significantly more shipping capacity and provide Saskatchewan businesses with improved connections across Canada and the rest of the world. New & Bigger Location

T

he 16 dock level-door terminal sits on an 8.4 acre property strategically located to service Corman Park, Saskatoon and the surrounding areas. It is equipped to handle the full spectrum of shipping requirements for the region’s oil and gas, forestry, mining, and agriculture industries. An open house was held on January 22nd to showcase the new terminal to Manitoulin customers, local dignitaries and the media. “This terminal benefits local

businesses by providing easier access to distant markets they may not otherwise be able to reach,” said Don Goodwill, president, Manitoulin Transport, who attended the ribbon cutting ceremony. “Now they have a reliable full-service transportation partner right on their doorstep that can help them drive success at home, and on a global scale.” Also in attendance was Judy Harwood, Reeve, Rural Municipality of Corman Park. “Saskatchewan is booming and local businesses must have service partners they can count on to help them optimize every opportunity for growth,” she said. “Getting shipments from A to B quickly and reliably is an essential part of doing business. As such, we are thrilled to welcome a company of the calibre of Manitoulin into our community. We believe the services Manitoulin provides will help take our businesses to the next level of competitiveness that they so deserve.” “This is the latest of several significant investments we’ve made recently to benefit our customers,” said Gord Smith, chief executive officer, Manitoulin Group of Companies. Manitoulin Transport’s existing terminal operations in Saskatoon will be moved to the new facility, with incumbent employees transferring to the new premises.

BORDER NEWS

CBSA System Update to Improve ACI eManifest Functionality, But Comes With Challenges Canada Border Services Agency will be introducing system enhancements to allow CBSA to modernize commercial border processes and allow for a more streamlined and predictable customs clearance process.

P

reviously, CBSA assessed documentation as separate components and these enhancements will enable CBSA to risk assess as a single unit when making determinations for admissibility to Canada for goods and people. The update will also mean that service providers and carriers with direct connections with CBSA will also have to make the necessary upgrades or risk not being able

to communicate with CBSA. The new functionality will be available in July 2014 and carriers and service providers will then have one full year to transition from current systems to the new systems. The impact to each carrier is entirely dependent on where they are in the process of communicating with CBSA today. Carriers’ systems are unique and different, volumes vary and amount of data and purpose of data is also different. While there will be widespread impact, it is unclear to what extent this will effect each carrier’s operations. There are two major changes that will take place. First, CBSA’s RNS messages will no longer exist as they do today. RNS messages are being replaced by new messages known as “Completeness Notices” which are pre-arrival notices. “Disposition Notices” will also be introduced. These are post arrival notices. The new “ACI Notices” aim to provide carriers and supply chain partners with greater visibility into the status of a shipment

throughout the process of transportation and importation into and through Canada up to, and including, release. RNS is scheduled to end in July 2014 and will be replaced with these new “ACI Notices”. The second major change is the EDI map to the ACI 309 cargo transmission. Existing EDIFACT maps were built by CBSA not in accordance with World Customs Organization (WCO) standards and this change will rectify that bringing the CBSA EDIFACT maps in line with WCO standards. This will facilitate global trade and communication with Canada. ANSI maps will also be impacted. As a result, carriers, service providers and other stakeholders that use EDI to communicate to CBSA will have to make changes to their systems. These changes do not impact highway carriers that exclusively use the ACI Portal or a service provider for eManifest, but those carriers should be aware of the new “ACI Notices”. RT

Crime Stoppers, OTA Take Aim at Cargo Crime in 2014 Momentum is building behind the Ontario Trucking Association’s efforts to combat the growing threat of cargo crime and bringing attention to the $5 billion problem.

20

FEBRUARY 2014

C

/roadtoday

rime Stoppers of York Region recently held a press conference in Markham, to mark International Crime Stoppers month and announce the program this year will focus on combatting cargo thefts and related crimes. The campaign – launched by York Regional Police, Crime Stoppers, the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (Organized Crime Committee), and endorsed by the Ontario Trucking Association – features a crime prevention video and “door hanger” program, which highlight the impact of cargo crime on communities and encourages the public to share tips through Crime Stoppers. Information is shared with Crime Stoppers anonymously and can carry rewards of up to $2,000 if it leads to the arrest for a crime and/or recovery of stolen property. The “door hangers” will be distributed throughout the local transportation community and at truckstops in York Region, the GTA and highway 401 corridor. “Cargo crime costs all of us and puts well-being of truck drivers and other transportation workers at risk. These crimes are everyone’s responsibility as they affect everything from jobs to the price of merchandise on the shelves and are used to fund many other types of crime, including violent crime” said Paul Lasalle, Detective Sergeant, York Regional Police. In 2010 the Canadian Trucking Alliance commissioned a groundbreaking report to gauge the scope, impact and trends of cargo crime. Recommendations from the report included increasing opportunities for stakeholders affected by cargo crime to exchange information, discuss issues and

work together to develop effective crime prevention strategies. In keeping with that goal, the OTA and CTA last year launched Project Momentum – an initiative to raise awareness and share mitigation strategies on the threat of cargo crime in the high-risk “hot spot” corridors along Highway 401. A inaugural workshop organized by the association last fall was a huge success and similar events are planned for 2014. Another recommendation in the CTA “Study of Cargo Crime in Canada” included raising the profile of cargo crime with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, through the Organized Crime Committee. The announcement made by all the partners is one of the many steps towards increasing the profile of cargo crime. “Criminals are drawn to cargo crime because it is low risk, high reward and there is a lack of attention paid to this issue. However, it’s anything but a victimless crime,” says Jennifer Fox, VP Trade and Security, CTA. “Thanks to efforts like this one from enforcement agencies like York Regional Police and Crime Stoppers, we can engage communities to help us put an end to cargo crime.” Anyone with information related to cargo crime or stolen goods can contact Crime Stoppers’ 24-hour toll free hotline at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or report securely online at www.tipsubmit.com or text tips to 274637(CRIMES). Tipsters never have to give their names or have to appear in court. Calls emails and texts can never be traced back to you. Cash rewards are offered for information leading to arrests for a crime or recovery of property. RT

eterbilt consistently sets higher standards for its products and services. It’s a 75-year tradition of excellence and innovation that has established expectations with an uncompromising focus to deliver the highest levels of quality, customer satisfaction and reward on investment,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. Peterbilt was founded in 1939 by T.A. Peterman manufacturing specialized, heavy-duty trucks out of Oakland, Calif. The company was acquired by PACCAR Inc, then called Pacific Car & Foundry, in 1958, and the manufacturing was relocated to Newark, Calif. in 1960. That decade the company’s truck output, market share and distribution network grew significantly. Peterbilt opened a new, second plant in Madison, Tenn. in 1969 to meet demand and better serve its customers from coast to coast. In 1980, a new manufacturing facility opened in Denton, Texas, a city where the company eventually consolidated its entire operations and is now its headquarters. Today, the state-of-the-art plant can produce more than 160 vehicles daily in numerous custom-built configurations for on-highway and vocational markets. Additionally, Peterbilt Class 6-7 trucks are manufactured in Ste. Therese, Quebec, and the proprietary PACCAR Engine lineup is produced in Columbus, Miss. Vehicles are distributed through a network of Peterbilt dealerships with more than 290

locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Limited Edition Model 579 One of those new vehicles will be offered as a special anniversary truck. The 75th Anniversary Edition Model 579 will be available for order through all full-service Peterbilt dealerships. Anniversary Tour Throughout 2014 Peterbilt will celebrate its anniversary with thousands of customers. A special edition Model 579 with a museum on wheels will visit Peterbilt dealerships and industry events. The museum is a converted trailer filled with displays, historic artifacts and interactive kiosks. History Book A coffee-table style book will be published and available for sale online during the first quarter. At nearly 250 pages, the hardcover book provides readers with a comprehensive overview on the evolution of the company, photos and facts about landmark models, profiles of customers and a section on Peterbilt’s leading brand. Marking the Milestone In addition, Woodall said Peterbilt will mark its anniversary with many other activities throughout the year, including: n Peterbilt trivia contests, with prizes, conducted through social media n Several anniversary videos showcasing both historic and present aspects of the company n A special merchandise collection available for retail online and at Peterbilt RT dealerships

GUESTCOLUMN

Transportation on a Caribbean Island It amazes me how different transportation can be across the world. In North America we have stringent policies, optimum training and mechanical regulations to keep things safe. I am sure the same thing goes on outside of North America to a certain degree, but it can still be shocking to see the type of things that actually go on. Recently I was on vacation on a small Caribbean island that I love dearly. I stay in an area that doesn’t require the need for a car as on the island they drive on the other side of the road as Europe does. Overtime I have began to explore the island by public transit and found it to be hair raising, fun and a full experience of how the locals get around.

T

he first time we used the local bus system was on a visit a few years ago where we took the bus to about an hour away from our hotel. That experience alone would stay in our minds for years to come as the bus ride was so wild that I developed hiccups for two days afterwards. This last visit we began again to explore the transit system. On the island there are three different bus systems operating within the same lanes. One is the public bus

system and then there are two private bus systems. All transit companies charge the same price and pretty much go to the same destinations. There are the large public buses about 30 feet long in length owned by the government, a private company that has 20 foot buses, and another private company that utilizes vans that can take about 16 people when crammed in and will stop anywhere on route. Everything is right hand drive on the island making it seem hair raising to us from North America. On the island other than the public system everyone is trying to get you onto their bus, not matter how crammed it is, almost as if they all work on commission. On this trip we used the bus a little more and viewed it almost like a ride from an amusement park. As a safety person here in Canada there were moments that I was in total disbelief at some of the things done by drivers of these buses. Maybe it was perception but speed limits seemed to be something only required in other countries. All roads are narrow, so seeing buses pass each other if another competing bus was stopped at the bus stop was new for me. I had never seen that in Canada. If you don’t flag the bus down in the proper manner I found that the bus driver can be get a little bent out of shape.

The best story was when the bus driver on a private system seemed to be more intent on getting to the end of his run than to do his job of dropping passengers off at their requested stops. After going by the desired bus stops on a number of occasions, a woman sitting in the middle of the bus shouted at the driver saying it was his job to drop people off at the bus stops. His reply of not being able to hear almost started a war on the bus right there. I saw buses go down roads we would never take equipment here in North America and I was totally startled when the driver on route in the country came to a dead end and proceeded to make a three point turn in some driveways. Who would create a bus route to a dead end street? All in all I believe much of it is perception into what we know as a safe system in North America. We are used to rules and regulations and I believe it has helped us have a safe transit system. In defence of the island system, I find they don’t have many accidents as everyone drives the same way and it seems to work well for them. On future trips I will continue to use public transit as it gives a great way to experience the local vibe of a city. I look forward to more experiences when I return to the island in the future. RT

LEAVE A LANE. IT ' S THE LAW.

Police, fire and ambulance personnel are often required to do their work on the shoulders of busy highways. For safety reasons, the law requires all drivers to slow down and proceed with caution when passing an emergency vehicle parked on the side of the highway with its lights activated. If the highway has more than one lane, the law also requires all drivers to move over leaving at least one lane between their vehicle and the parked emergency vehicle, if it can be done safely. Obeying this law will save lives! Violating it can result in a $2,000 fine and three demerit points.

HELP SAVE LIVES. MOVE OVER.

DEPLACEZ -VOUS LIBEREZ UNE VOIE. C ' EST LA LOI.

Les policiers, les pompiers et les ambulanciers doivent souvent faire leur travail sur les accotements d’autoroutes achalandées. Pour des raisons de sécurité, la loi exige que tous les conducteurs ralentissent et fassent preuve de prudence lorsqu’ils dépassent un véhicule d’urgence stationné sur le côté de la route avec ses gyrophares activés. Sur une route à plusieurs voies, la loi exige aussi que tous les conducteurs se déplacent de façon à libérer au moins une voie entre leur véhicule et le véhicule d’urgence stationné, pourvu que cela puisse se faire en toute sécurité. Respecter cette loi aidera à sauver des vies! L’enfreindre peut entraîner une amende de 2 000 $ et trois points d’inaptitude.

BEST IS NOT GOOD A middle-aged man wasn’t feeling well, so he went to the doctor for a check-up. After a thorough examination, the doctor said, “Well, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up alcohol, and stop smoking.” The man said, “Well, to be honest with you, Doc, I think I don’t deserve the best.
