      Ol' Blue, USA NEWS for January, 2002


    The First On-line Coloring Book About Safety and Large Vehicles

    January 2002, Van Nuys, CA: Ol’ Blue, USA ® announces the exciting new adventure for the Big Wheels, Little Kids School Program. The new FREE on-line coloring book (printable) is now available to assist in the education to children about the importance of safety around large vehicles. The coloring book can be viewed at the Ol’ Blue, USA website at www.olbueusa.org/coloringbook

    Based upon the storybook version, Officers Ken Wallace and Dan Francisco come alive as Officer Brown and Officer Blue, thanks to Gerry Kissell, web design manager of TruckNet. The coloring book is based on true experiences of RJ Taylor. Shell Rotella ® -T contributes a $10,000 grant yearly; additional sponsors for the Big Wheels, Little Kids Safety Program are being sought.

    “Visual and hands on learning stimulate the minds of the young. By being able to interact, read and color, the lessons taught to the children of all school ages will be shared and passed on to many, keeping the roadways safer for all, children are the future drivers of America.” States founder RJ Taylor.

    ‘Ol’ Blue’ ®, a 1951 vintage working-truck, driven by RJ Taylor, is also an 80,000 pound teacher’s aide. The School Program was incorporated into the Ol’ Blue, USA agenda in 1986, however the truck and driver, RJ Taylor, had already visited schools for 15 years. Ms. Bobbi Farrell came up with the name, Big Wheels Little Kids © in 1988. Ol’ Blue, USA conducted its first cross-country National Safety Tour in 1995, with much success

    The 2002 Safety Tour is preparing to be as active as it has been over the past years. The first visit will be to the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville Kentucky March 21-23, 2002 (booth 200 – East Wing). Although numerous requests for school and community event visitations have been received beyond normal capacity, the increase in general liability insurance rates has limited the visitation schedule.

    Safety is the number one concern among drivers today and the sole purpose behind Ol’ Blue, USA. A 501 (c)(3) charitable organization, Ol’ Blue, USA is the only non-profit organization dedicated to large vehicle safety endorsed by law enforcement agencies, schools and other key members of the trucking industry
