      Ol' Blue, USA NEWS for January, 2006

    Ol Blue, USAs

    Website is the latest to offer HOS help!

     

    Van Nuys, Calif., January 2006 Still confused about the new hours-of-service (HOS) rules that took effect October 1, 2005?   Not sure how they will impact your driving, resting and off-duty time?  Looking for some answers without wading through the entire federal regulations?

     

    With the assistance of the Nebraska State Patrol, the Ol Blue, USA website now provides an easy-to-use, straightforward presentation of the new HOS rules, complete with sample logbook pages.  To access this information, go to http://www.AskTheLaw.org and click on the button that says Log Book Presentation from Nebraska State Patrol.

     

    The 58-page presentation was compiled by the Nebraska State Patrol, using its own information and information and interpretations from federal sources.  The slideshow, current as of January 1, 2006, loads fast and is easy to navigate, and can also be printed.

    The use of the Nebraska State Patrols presentation on the Ol Blue, USA website has been made possible thanks to the assistance of Sgt. Jim Brokaw, with the permission of Colonel Bryan Tuma.

    The information contained in the presentation has been used by Sgt. Brokaw to train Nebraska State Patrol personnel responsible for supervising the troopers assigned to the patrols Carrier Enforcement Division.  The presentation will also be the basis for in-service refresher training for the patrols troopers.

    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 again, we were very 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, Taylor noted.

     

    Founded in 1986, Ol Blue, USA (United Safety Alliance, Inc), a non-profit 501 (c)(3) public charity, at http://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 its National Safety Tour, Ol Blue a 1951 antique truck, pulls a 53-foot rolling billboard trailer featuring the charitys supporters, including Shell Rotella-T, Alcoa Wheel, California Highway Patrol, Nevada Highway Patrol and U.S. Department of Transportation.  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 http://www.SafetyTour.org
