  •   Ol' Blue, USA NEWS for December, 2003

    Ol’ Blue,® USA’s “One Spot” Links from its Safety Info Center

    Confused about the new Hours of Service (HOS) rules starting January 4, 2004? Not sure how they will change the way you drive? Looking for some answers without wading through the entire federal regs?

    With the assistance of the Nebraska State Patrol, the Ol’ Blue, USA® Web site now provides an easy-to-use, straightforward presentation of the new HOS rules, complete with sample logbook pages at www.cdlSafety.org.

    The 35-page Flash presentation on the HOS changes was compiled by the Nebraska State Patrol from its own and from federal sources, and made available to Ol’ Blue, USA. With the assistance of Sgt. Jim Brokaw and with the permission of Col. Tom Nesbitt from the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) and FMCSA, the Ol’ Blue, USA Web site now provides an easy-to-use, straightforward presentation of the new rules, complete with sample logbook pages. The slideshow loads fast and is easy to navigate. It’s also easy to update – and this could become a concern as the Jan. 4, 2004, kickoff date nears and the rules are still being interpreted.

    In addition to the slideshow, the Web page includes links to detailed federal regs in PDF and HTML formats, including:

    HOS Technical Amendments, Driver's HOS Regulations;
    HOS Drivers - Driver Rest and Sleep for Safe Operations Final Rule;
    HOS Regulatory Evaluation;
    HOS Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Attached Environmental Assessment;
    HOS News Release, Driver's HOS Brochure;
    Driver's HOS Pocket Guide; HOS Presentation; and Frequently Asked Questions.

    Also on the page are links to the Ol’ Blue, USA guide to pre-trip inspections, a collection of “A Safety Minute”© With Ol’ Blue, USA radio/Web spots, and a Tire Blowout Safety Video produced by Michelin® Tire Co. called “The Critical Factor.” Together, the resources on this one Web page offer drivers one of the most complete sources of information about safety and compliance.

    “We have been flooded with calls and e-mails from drivers wanting to know how the new Hours of Service rules will affect them,” said RJ Taylor, founder of Ol’ Blue, USA. “When the opportunity to present this slideshow was offered to us, we were really excited.” Ol’ Blue, USA is dedicated to safety through education, and this was a terrific opportunity to help educate not only drivers and fleets, but also media and law enforcement that have questions about the changes.
    “We also felt that by putting links to our other safety education material on the same page, we’d make it easier for people to find what they want quickly, and in one place,” Taylor said.

    Founded in 1986, Ol’ Blue, USA (United Safety Alliance, Inc), a non-profit 501 (c)(3) public charity, at www.olblueusa.org is dedicated to educating the nation on highway safety and improving relations between law enforcement officials, commercial drivers and the motoring public. During the National Safety Tour, Ol’ Blue,® a 1951 working truck, pulls a 53-foot “rolling billboard” trailer featuring the charity’s sponsors, including Michelin, Shell Rotella-T, Alcoa Wheel and those of the CHP, KVE, NHP and the U.S. DOT. In addition, Ol’ Blue, USA, conducts simulated truck inspections at trade shows and truck stops, and takes various programs to community events and public schools in an effort to teach safety around all large vehicles. You can visit the Safety Tour at www.SafetyTour.org
